Chicken and Avocado Enchiladas

Chicken and Avocado Enchiladas
Chicken and avocado burritos are one of my favourite recipes, and one that I'm making all the time! The chicken and avocado combo is absolutely amazing in burritos and its also spectacular in enchiladas! You really can't go wrong taking chicken and avocado burritos and smothering them in enchilada sauce and cheese before baking until the cheese has melted! Really! It's that easy! You just take the burritos, place them in a baking dish, pour on an enchilada sauce, sprinkle with cheese and bake! I like to make a simple salsa verde and avocado 'enchilada sauce' but a store bought green enchilada sauce also works well and it's super convenient! If you're looking for a family friendly, quick and easy dinner for busy work nights, these chicken and avocado enchiladas can't be beat!

Does rolling up all of those enchiladas sound like too much work? How about just making tacos, spreading them out on a plate and topping them with the enchilada sauce and cheese and baking until the cheese has melted! Free-form enchilada tacos! (Open-faced enchiladas?)
