  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

  4. Fold dough in half over filling; press edges firmly with fork to seal. Prick tops with fork.
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Another spicy cheese you can use is Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeƱo peppers or, as it's also known, pepper Jack cheese.

This is a great way to use leftover rotisserie chicken or even leftover taco meat from the night before. This recipe also works with refrigerated crescent rolls or whomp biscuits. Freezes well.

Easy, BUT.. These were okay. I can't say much more than that. The sauce isn't enough flavor. Husband and I agreed black olives and more cheese would be better, too. Husband wants me to try again, but not individual foldovers, adding ingredients. Will edit, if I do.

I added corn and black beans. mmmm

I just saw this and thought I'd try it for a quick lunch using some leftover chicken - I love the simplicity of the ingredients and preparation, and it was a perfect lunch solution. I chopped and sauteed some white onions while prepping the pizza dough, and added them to the cheese - just like our local Mexican restaurant does with their enchiladas.

Used green chili sauce instead of red enchilada sauce. LOVED IT!

This was good! But very hard in making.
