** I couldn't find the frozen chicken breast strips....so I used southwestern chicken breast strips that I found in the lunchmeat section of the grocery ( I think it was Tyson brand, but not sure). It was only 6-ounces, but that seemed to be enough.
*** I used salsa instead of enchilada sauce (just because I had some).
