Greek Yogurt and Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Somewhere in my Mom Life, I had forgotten about these delicious enchiladas. I used to make these ALL the time when we were first married, but somehow, I have not made them for a good 5 or 6 years. I don’t know why. What I do know is everyone gobbled these up last Sunday when they made a reappearance on our dinner table. They are light, creamy, and full of whole-ingredient flavor!  To make sure I never forget how awesome these are again, I am sharing them here with you. To complete the meal, I served these with my Mango Salsa. So. Stinking. Delicious! Enjoy!

Notes

This recipe makes two pans, so freeze one and save it for a busy day later. However, we usually eat a pan and a half and have the rest for lunch the next day.
