Ever since I made the Thai inspired sweet chili chili dressing it has been haunting my dreams and I have been obsessing about using it again! Really this sweet chili dressing is addictive enough to eat by the spoonful or even drink by the bottle full but I wanted to use it in another recipe and enchiladas sounded like the perfect option! I was thinking that chicken and sweet chili would be an amazing combination for enchiladas, I mean you really cannot go wrong with smothering chicken in a tasty sauce, wrapping it in tortillas, and drowning it in melted cheese! I did however want to fill the enchiladas out a bit and cool and creamy avocados were and excellent way to do so! The sweet chili sauce and melted cheese combo works surprisingly well together in these chicken enchiladas and the avocados bring bring everything together!
The sweet chili dressing works amazingly well in these enchiladas but you want to go easy on it so as not to overpower the other flavours.
Just look at all of that melted cheesy goodness!
