Cheatin' chicken enchiladas

From Cookipedia

This recipe is a great way of using up leftovers. It came about because I needed to use up a (frozen) carton of Waitrose green Thai chicken soup and also needed a photograph of enchiladas.

The ingredients were those to hand so you could easily meddle with them.

If you are not using a spicy soup, then add a few finely chopped chillies (to taste) and either a can of chicken soup or some chicken stock that has been thickened with a tablespoon of flour.
