Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Do you love easy, delicious, one-dish meals as I do? This Creamy Chicken Enchiladas recipe from Taste of Home is one that I have made often. I made it again a number of weeks ago, and was reminded of how very good it is.

It also freezes well, which is especially helpful for busy end-of-summer days and back-to-school days. Make up a recipe, and put part of it in the freezer for another day, as each recipe makes two 9x13 pans.

You can add any toppings you wish for these creamy enchiladas ... I like to smother them with sour cream, salad greens, and tomatoes.
