Chicken enchiladas are a big favorite in our family, and this is quite a tasty recipe. If you like more heat, add some chopped jalapeno chile peppers to the mixture along with the milder peppers.

Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
- 1 cup chopped onions
- 2 large cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained
- 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano

- 1 to 1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken

In a skillet heat oil and sauté and garlic for about 5 minutes, until tender. Stir in tomatoes, chiles, oregano, salt, and sugar. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine 1/2 cup of the sauce with the chicken and set aside. Bring remaining sauce just to a boil. Place a tortilla in sauce to soften. Remove, letting excess sauce drip back into skillet.
