Meals by my roommate {buffalo chicken enchiladas}


Oh. Yes. Those are indeed buffalo chicken enchiladas.

This week has been my busiest week in 2014, mainly because of a combination of school assignments due and going back to work after missing days during the Snowpocalypse. But I'm almost to the weekend and I can feel myself winding down. I haven't had much time to cook this week, but my roommate had a clever idea to try making buffalo chicken enchiladas. I'm not sure what inspired her to cook these, and I don't really carebecause they were amazing!

I'm sharing the recipe below, enjoy!

Enchiladas are my absolute go-to dish when I eat Mexican out, so I'm excited to try this recipe myself. What kind of enchiladas do you like?

  9. I've never had enchiladas before but these look pretty amazing, I cannot lie. And the spice will probably make it punch with flavor and I'm hungry so that could maybe explain my drool as well lol :)
