Dad's Favorite Chicken Enchiladas

My dad was raised in Phoenix, Arizona, so he knows his way around Mexican food. The one thing that he will complain about in the huge international smorgasbord that is the Houston restaurant scene is the distinct lack of "REAL Mexican food", just a lot of TexMex. Nothing wrong with TexMex, but compared to the stuff in Arizona, it's a little... unbalanced. So when he said that my enchiladas were the best he had ever tasted, I took that as the true compliment it was. This is easy but time consuming, real cooking times are explained in the recipe. You can cook the using a skillet or a crock pot. You could even use leftover chicken by skipping to the rolling - but I would season the chicken with 1/2 cup stock and a quarter of the spices listed.
