Red Enchiladas

This is one of our favorite family recipes. I got this recipe from my wonderful sister-in-law Becky.

2 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
1 can chili con carne/no beans (we use chili with beans)
1/2 pound Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 can Enchilada sauce (Rosarita is the best)
sprinkling of onion powder 
8-10 flour tortillas

Cook chicken and dice. Assemble enchiladas by putting chicken onion powder and cheese inside. I first mix these up in a bowl together to make it easier. Roll up tortillas and put in a 9x13 inch pan. Pour enchilada sauce and chili all over the top of the tortillas. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. 

These are yummy with a dollop of sour cream on top or to make it restaurant style you could put some shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes on top.

I'm glad you guys like these. This is my mom's recipe. I actually just made them a few weeks ago and it had been a while since we last did.
