I love a good enchilada. And so does my family! When my oldest was in second grade, while others were saying their favorite food was pizza, he said his was Avocado Enchiladas. That still is a favorite recipe to our family today. We love buffalo sauce in our family. And we love enchiladas. Put the two together and you have an instant favorite!

This recipe was simple to throw together. You won’t believe how incredible all of the flavors are inside of these enchiladas. The center is creamy and delicious and it has a little bit of kick to it. But not too much that my boys weren’t able to eat them. It is always a successful meal when the entire family will eat them. I already can’t wait to make them again!
