If there is anything hard to turn down, it’s Mexican food.  It’s a pure weakness when it comes to tortillas, re-fried beans, tacos, queso, guacamole and the ever favorite, chips and salsa!  Whenever I make my homemade Black Beans or 5-Minute Salsa it going to be a great day for sure! 

I frequently make chicken enchiladas and I love to make a little extra for lunch leftovers the next day.  However, they can be a bit time consuming with all of the filling and rolling. 

That’s how these little Green Chili Chicken Enchilada cups came about…because I was being lazy!  Or smart?  Perspective I guess!  Either way, these have been something easy and a fun addition to our menu.  These would also be perfect to bring to a potluck, a BBQ, or to make for lunch! 

I garnished them with some chopped tomatoes, a little cilantro leaf and a piece of avocado.  Or you could put a little dollop of guacamole or sour cream on top.  I’m telling you, these are gone in minutes!
