Chicken and Mushroom Enchiladas

There’s a special place in my heart for Mexican / Tex-Mex food. Tacos, salsa, jalepeños, margaritas, rice & beans … all of it … so good. Enchiladas had never been my go-to when I was craving Mexican, but after a recent trip to Loco Taqueria they were brought back onto my radar. This dish is quite simple and simply delicious!
