Rotisserie chicken works well for this recipe. Just remove the skin and bones, and shred the meat with 2 forks. One average rotisserie chicken yields about 3 1/2 to 4 cups cooked chicken.
Red enchilada sauce can be used. It will give a pink tint to the finished recipe.
You could serve this recipe with tortilla chips as an appetizer.
USER Tip- This is a good recipe, but it doesn't take near 6 hours to cook. Maybe 3, but the tortillas come out too soft it its cooked too long. But otherwise the dish has a great flavor!
