Ann T (and others) extra enchilada sauce

I made your chicken enchilada with green sauce, and I have leftover sauce. What would you suggest I put it on? It is good, but I only had so much chicken.

You can serve it just over plain rice as well or use it as a dip for tortilla chips. Helene's suggestions are good also.
