Lightened Up Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas!

image

Enchiladas are one of my favorite foods. I could eat them for dinner every night if I was allowed to. Waitโ€ฆIโ€™m an adult. I am allowed to! This might be next on my freezer food preparation list.

Afterย spending all day Friday with my mom, I was exhausted. I was running on only a couple hours of sleep because of the drive the night before. I tapped out around six and laid on the couch while she made dinner. Sometimes it feels good to be lazy. It feels even better when you are at your parents house.

Finally it was time to eat. My mom set the table and placed the enchiladas in the center! She has been making healthier swaps in the kitchen lately and lightened them up! They still tasted great! I could hardly tell she changed up the recipe from her original.

She served the enchiladas with Spanish rice. My dad, her, and I devoured most of the pan. The pictures in this post are leftovers from dinner, and they were even better the next day!
