These are delicious!!!! I used Mexican blend cheese and green onion. I also added about 1/4 cup of chunky salsa. I used burrito size flour tortillas and topped it off with red enchilada sauce before baking. All that was left to do was melt the cheese on top sprinkle with the chopped greens from the green onion and they looked like something that came out of a Mexican restaurant. Serve with a side of Spanish rice and you have a great meal in no time at all! Read More

Wow! These turned out great! I loved them, I used less sour cream and added cilantro b/c everything tastes better with cilantro and more cheese, of course. I am usually very critical when it comes to recipes...this one was fantastic! I will make this again. Read More

Great Recipe...tried it last night and my husband loved them. His exact words were "these are so delicious and definitely are restaurant quality". I took the advice of another reviewer and topped them with red enchilada sauce and I reduced the cheese by half and they turned out perfect. Thanks! Read More

Excellent and easy! The only thing I added was green enchilada sauce over the top while it baked and it turned out wonderful. Thanks! Read More

I cooked the onion and chicken in butter and a little chicken broth. In the same pan I added some cream cheese and the shredded cheeses etc. I added some cumin and cilantro. I did this to make my own sauce instead of using canned soup. I also poured some red enchilada sauce over the top then cheese. Read More

Wow.. this is really super yummy! I made the recipe exactly to specs EXCEPT I used shredded Mexican blend cheese for all the cheese, which was fine. I think if I were making it for just me and my husband I MIGHT use more chilis, or maybe hotter chilis (I bought the "mild") but since I'm also feeding a 7 year old that is out of the question. These are EXTREMELY filling... even my husband could only put away 2 ... so I have another full meal for another night! I made Mexican rice as a side which NOBODY ate ... these are a meal in themselves!!! Thanks Cheryl! Read More

This is a really good basic recipe. I added green onion and chopped black olives ('cuz I had them) to the filling. I served the enchiladas on a plate of green chili sauce (spiked w/ red pepper flakes for heat), and topped it with black bean and corn salsa. My husband said "great!" and "it's a keeper!) Good recipe with lots of possibilities - thanks! Read More

I struggle to find meals that will satisfy both me and my boyfriend. He eats ALOT so I usually have to make all kinds of side dishes. These enchildas were great and filling for both of us(there was so much left over he ate it for the next couple of days)! I added refried beans on the inside and enchilada sauce on top and I will definitely make these in the future! Read More
