Chicken Enchiladas w/ Macayo’s Red Sauce by Amanda

(Amanda made this again for the September 2012 swap. She said, “I added 1 can of cream of chicken soup to the chicken mixture before spooning it into the tortillas. So an attempt at creamy + red sauce enchiladas.”  The first time she did it without the soup so the first 4 comments refer to the original recipe without cream soup.

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 cup water
