His favorite food on the blog are these Avocado Enchiladas. While everyone at school was saying that their favorite food was pizza and macaroni and cheese, his response was Chicken Enchiladas with Avocado Cream Sauce. He cracks me up!

  1. I made this last week and it was absolutely delicious. I will make it again and again. So easy and even reheated, it just gets tastier. I had a friend ask how to adjust it for diabetics, I have no clue what a diabetic recipe would look like. Any ideas?

    1. For a diabetic the chips would be a big problem because of the carbs which turn to sugar. We use Late July Organic Sea Salt Thin & Crispy Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips. The carbs are much lower. However, one serving of anything with chips is enough due to diabetes.

    1. They do a little, but that just makes them more like tortillas than chips. Other recipes use corn tortillas but I think they would get even soggier.

      I did not use the onion or chicken broth, and it turned out great after 6 hours on low.

      I don’t think the author meant to say to cook it on low AND high. She meant one of the other.

  2. I too ALWAYS want the size of a package in ounces (what if we want to substitute something else?).

    Please — how many ounces in the bag of corn tortillas?

    1. I do think it would work although I would not layer the chips with the raw chicken. Just serve them on top of the chips.
