Gluten Free Sweet Potato & Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Yesterday, I tickled your taste buds with the most delicious red enchilada sauce. Today, I'm showing you one of the many ways you can use that sauce! This enchilada casserole, full of Mexican-spiced chicken, sweet corn, coriander and my own Mexican rice, was an enormous hit with my family.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole Ready to Serve from Anyonita Nibbles

To make it gluten free, I used gluten free sweet potato wraps that added a lovely punch of sweetness to the dish. And to make it super easy to do, I used shop-bought Mexican-spiced pre-cooked chicken breast. This one is super easy to do, refrigerates beautifully and tastes absolutely divine!
