Recipe For Skillet Enchiladas


The other day I decided to make a gluten filled dinner for my family. I got out the usual ingredients to make Chicken Enchiladas (and might I say, I DO make some dishes over and over despite my family complaining that they rarely get family favorites). Because I was in a time crunch, I looked at the ingredients and suddenly wondered if I could simply make enchiladas in a skillet instead of turning on the oven. Guess what? I could and I did!

Sometimes I throw cold ingredients together, stuff tortillas and then bake them. In this case, I cooked up a fresh filling. Working with a hot filling was a little hard on my fingers, but in the end, I think the whole thing went together faster. Everyone thought they were delicious, so I am thinking I won’t be baking my enchiladas, at least not in the summer, any more.
