This recipe is from Let’s Dish and I think  they’ll be called Mexican Crepes from this point on since they reminded us quite a bit of crepes and not too much of enchiladas!  I loved these the most and claimed all of the leftovers for my own.  The guys enjoyed them as well, but I was the one who really dug them.  This would be delicious with spinach added to the chicken mixture.
