Wild Chicken Enchiladas
One of our favorite family recipes is our Chicken Enchiladas. Its great family dinner or for bigger groups to share and enjoy with a margarita, ranch water or a easy drinking cerveza.
Like many would predict, enchiladas originated in Mexico. Even back in Mayan times, the people of that time would roll other foods into tortillas. It's been a practice in that part of the world for many centuries.
