Easy Chicken Enchilada

I usually make everything from scratch , this time , i cheat !! Once in a while is okay to make life in the kitchen easier and simpler , right ?

So this time , i am making chicken enchilada , my secret to make it a lot easier and quicker , is to use rotisserie chicken . My local grocery store has a yummy rotisserie chicken , and who wouldn’t love rotisserie chicken ? They have the most moist meat even from the white meat area . And i also use the enchilada seasoning mix from Mc.Cormick , i didn’t have to do too much of anything except just mixing it with water and tomato sauce .

The rest i just chopped some green onions and green chiles , and voila .. it’s ready to be baked . It tastes pretty good , of course it’s not as authentic as the mexican restaurant has , but this is good enough for us .
