Chicken Enchilada Puffs

I have made these delicious little chicken enchilada puffs twice this month already. And the first time I made them my sister came over for a visit. She loved them so much that she made me make some more to take home to her hubby. When you pay a visit to The Recipe Critic you never leave hungry or empty handed. 🙂  I loved how easy these are to make. I was even able to show my sister who isn’t very confident at cooking step by step how to make them. You can have them in the oven by the time that the oven is preheated. These puffs are packed with amazing flavor and the cream cheese inside is awesome! This is one of those recipes that is especially great when you want to have a great meal that doesn’t require a lot of effort!
