Spicy Chicken Enchiladas

Gabriel and I love Mexican food. I would say we eat it almost once or twice every week. While I was pinning some fun & healthy recipes last week, I came across this dish and knew I had to try it!



Can you believe these are actually low fat enchiladas? I didn't know there was such a thing!
