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 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!
