This recipe for Creamy Chicken Enchiladas is another quick and easy dinner, in the time it takes you to light your coals you can assemble this luscious and cheesy dish. Heat the cream cheese, Rotel tomatoes and chicken, roll the tortillas, cover with whipping cream and bake. Six burrito sized tortillas just fit in my 12 inch oven, use the taco sized ones if you want to squeeze them in your smaller oven. I heated them with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 22 on the top. Cut into one of these creamy, rich enchiladas and watch the cheese ooze onto your plate.
