What happens when you cross pancakes with enchiladas? Well, you get panchiladas of course. 

This delicious hybrid pancake is the perfect treat for dinner. Each pancake is packed with pieces of tender chicken, soft roasted peppers, and a rich tomato sauce with a kick of spice thanks to the jalapeno peppers. Top with grated cheese and bake in the oven for 15 mins until golden.
