Gluten-Free Chicken Enchiladas

This gluten-free diet isn’t too bad. I’m learning to like the gluten-free options I have and am trying new recipes. We leave tomorrow for Hayward, WI, to visit some friends. Enchiladas always allow enough food for the evening and the next day, so we will be able to eat something before leaving to drive the 3 hours north.
