Green chile enchiladas

Enchiladas are on the menu ATLEAST once a month at our house. We love them! Green chile enchiladas are one of our favorites. I took one of my old recipes and turned it “creamy” to create the perfect enchiladas. I love how they turned out! These have the perfect combination of flavors and taste absolutely delicious! They do have a little kick to them, so if you don’t like things spicy make sure to take out the chili powder and cumin
