Southwest Chicken Enchilada Pie Recipe {Monday Meals}

During the winter months, I crave comfort food. What about you?

This recipe is a family favorite . . . everyone (kids included) loves it.

Right before I left for El Salvador, I planned to make chicken enchiladas. Only this time, I had a problem. I forgot to buy the tortillas and didn’t want to go back to the store.

So, I made up a new recipe called Southwest Chicken Enchilada Pie recipe.  I put a picture on facebook and everyone wanted the recipe. Well, here it is.
