Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada Recipe Plus {giveaway}

How to Make Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas using Enchilada Sauce Mix is easy, economical and tastes great.  My family LOVED it.  For a family of seven, that doesn’t always happen.  My favorite thing about the recipe is that it’s a creamy enchilada that doesn’t use a cream of chicken soup base.  The enchiladas are moist, creamy, flavorful and not too spicy.  Win a McCormick Spice Gift Set so you can get cooking too!  Simply Comment to win!  Scroll down for more details!sour cream chicken enchilada

    I love their Pumpkin Pie Spice or at least when my wife uses it to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

    I probably use the most black pepper and garlic powder, but I love the Mexican seasoning.

    I will only buy McCormick garlic powder! No other brand has worked as well for me.

    YUM! I pinned this so I’d remember to make it later.

    At my house it has to be garlic! I use it just about every day.
