Chicken Enchiladas

Haha, these enchiladas are certainly not authentic–Wait, Mexican cooks don’t use Cream of Chicken soup?–but they are delicious, and you likely have all the ingredients on hand all the time. And one pan makes quite a few leftovers if you want easy lunches for the week.

I’m still working on a gluten free version of this that tastes good. For a while I wasn’t able to handle dairy, so I tried vegan sour cream and GF Mission tortillas, and it was terrible. And the tortillas turned to mush. When I was able to handle dairy again, I tried it with corn tortillas, but then it tasted very much of oil from the tortillas. I think maybe I’ll try making my own gluten free flour tortillas before I attempt this again.
