Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

This has been one of our most fave recipes for a long, long time. Mairi loves it too. We are big fans here of onion, pepper, and sour cream :) I also am a big fan of recipes in which you just throw it all together, mix it up and have a meal. So easy. One thing I will say is that we are kind of afraid of Velveeta. We used to make it with Velveeta, but now we use an organic salsa con queso on top instead and it's just as good and easier than melting velveeta LOL
