I love making dinner, especially when I can create a theme dinner! Who doesn’t like Mexican food? My family goes wild for these chicken enchiladas, and who can blame them? Anytime a recipe calls for shredded chicken, I go straight to Costco and get a whole chicken, a $5 timesaver! I always shred it before refrigerating, if I’m not going to cook it right away.
