by 247tasty

It is never a bad time for the feast with all the plates we juggle in this life that can raise the spirits and spice a little! Good food is an exciting trip across the world, but we are not all able to spend money or extra time dreaming on a plane into the warm sands of Mexico. So … we thought why not take those tropical flavors home for a holiday? Trying new things in the kitchen may be a fun experience, but we also feel confident in knowing that food has a certain amount of tried and true ingredients to supply every household. You will find sweet, golden Mexican cheese on top and mixed inside these enchiladas, as well as rich cream cheese mixed with hot chicken seasoned with spicy spices and cool lime juice.

1/4 cup sour cream
2 cups prepared salsa
