Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas

Salsa Verde Chicken Enchiladas

Not sure what to have for dinner?!?! I got you covered with these super easy to make salsa verde chicken enchiladas. Filled with all the good stuff including shredded chicken, cheddar cheese , greek yogurt, cilantro, garlic and the star of the show is the salsa verde. I used Trader Joe’s salsa verde and it did not disappoint, so flavorful and tangy!

I even snuck in some fiber without compromising the dish. Artichoke Hearts!! Yep that’s right… a little prebiotic to the mix so while you’re making your tummy happy you’re also feeding all the good bacteria in the gut too! Recipe below.
