Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

When I was in high school, we were suppose to wake someone up for psychology class. Then we were suppose to ask them what they were dreaming about. So, I woke up my sister and she told me that she was dreaming about The Young Riders. Sometimes it is better not to ask any more questions. Well, I noticed my son was dreaming the other day and tried to wake him up. It isn't an easy thing to do. Eventually, he answered my question about what he was dreaming about. His reply, "I was dreaming about sleeping." It is one of his favorite things to do besides eating. Well, this recipe is one of his favorite meals. He has asked for me to make it a couple of times.
