Normally, I don’t start out with the picture of my first bite, but I had to with this one.  Just look at that!  With the cheese! I need some more White Chicken Enchiladas, like now.

If you’re like me and can’t have certain foods, for example, anything tomato-y, then you’ll appreciate these.  A lot of times I have to change up recipes to accommodate my issues.  Enchiladas were always my go-to meal when I ate at Mexican restaurants.  Now, I can’t. But that’s ok, I can make my own and have control over what goes in it.

What’s in them?

For these White Chicken Enchiladas, I used a white sauce instead of the typical enchilada sauce.  The filling consists of chicken fajita meat and onions.  And the sauce is a white sour creamy chicken-y sauce.  I topped them with Kraft Three Cheese shredded cheese.  This has become my favorite shredded cheese.  It has Monterey Jack, Colby & Cheddar Cheese with a touch of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.  That cream cheese makes the cheese creamier and smoother.  Most recipes will call for just Monterey Jack cheese.  You’re more than welcome to go that route.  Whatever tickles your tastebuds.

I served this with my Queso Blanco Rice and tortilla chips to scoop up all that sauce.  That’s what I’m talking bout!


Any other peeps out there that can’t eat tomatoes?
