I would give this 6 stars if I could. We made a few simple changes, just for our preferences...used shredded chicken, light soup, low fat sour cream, cut cheese to 2 cups. Added 1 tsp cumin & chili powder to chicken. Awesome, this is a keeper. Presents well, I would serve this to company. Thanks for sharing!Read More

so easy and so good! I took the advice of some other members and added green chiles and tomatoes to each enchilada to give them a little more of a kick. to cut down on the fat I used reduced fat sour cream, reduced fat cream of chicken soup and reduced fat cheese and it all still tasted delicious.
This recipe is wonderful! My family requests it all the time! The only thing I do different is I add green chilis from a can to the sour cream mixture and I also saute the chicken in taco seasoning to give it a little more flavor!
This is delicious! Easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. I had guests for a football play-offs party and everyone left with a copy of the recipe! I added 1 can of chopped green chilis to the soup & sour cream mixture. From now on this is the way I will always make Chicken Enchiladas.
Home run! I was worried that the sour cream taste would be too strong, but it wasn't at all! The cheese blends in with the sour cream and cream of chicken to taste like nacho cheese. I used Sargento's Mexican blend. Overall, an awesome, easy to make dish with lots of color!
This method is easy and delicious. My family and guests really enjoyed the flavor. I too, added some canned finely chopped chilis to each enchilada and served with a side of pico de gallo.
This was simply the best enchilada recipe we have come across. I followed the recipe to the T and it not only tasted wonderful but looked absolutely fantastic as it was put on the table. Needs no addition or any kind of change.
I loved this recipe, it had lots of flavor and it was easy to make. I used montery jack cheese instead of the cheddar, green enchilada sauce instead of the red and I left out the lettuce. Everyone loved it, even the picky eater in the house. I would definately make this again.
I love this recipe! I don't like refried beans, however, so I use black beans instead. I would definitely add a little chili pepper and cumin to the chicken mix, and sauted onions are really good in there too if you don't have green onions on hand. The best secret is to make the Ten Minute Enchilada sauce on this website instead of using canned. So tasty!
This was awesome! I used the 10" tortillas and used more stuffing in them. I would also cut back on the sour cream & the soup and add more chicken. Other than that, my family LOVED them. I'll make them again and again. Thank you.
These were delicious. Only thing I did differently was to add green chilies with the sour cream, and to not add the enchilada sauce until the end. Very yummy and filling!
This recipe was wonderful. It was very easy and I only changed the cheese to a mexican blend and added the green onions to the chicken mixture also. My husband loved it and I took the leftovers to my parents and they thought it was awesome.
Great dish! Whole family loved it. I took the advice of others and boiled chicken breasts, then fried them in a little olive oil, fajita seasoning and chili powder. Gave the chicken a great flavor. We will definitely make this one again.
Love this recipe! I will keep making these ones.
I did add 1/2 tsp cumin and 1/2 tsp adobo, also 2 tsp on green chiles to the soup based on other reviewers mentioning blandness, luckily I had all their suggestions. (I did taste before adding and agreed, it needed spicing up) Was DELICIOUS! We will be making again, and again, and again!
I followed the recipe exactly and it tastes wonderful!
These were amazing! I accidently bought a pkg of 8 tortillas instead of 10 but it worked out okay. I used light sour cream, added a can of corn and a can of mild green chilies and used mild green enchilada sauce! Yum yum! My kids loved them too!
My dad is not a big enchilada fan, but he could not get enough of these! The filling is really rich and creamy, but not overwhelming. I would not recommend making this for someone who does not like sour cream
Had this on weekend. I liked it, however wasn't thrilled with the enchilada sause on top (could have been the brand(?)). The filling was good, and my husband enjoyed it as well. Nice for a change...I'd make agin (no enchilada sause).
These were delicious! We followed the advice of other reviews and added green chiles to the chicken mixture and added an extra can of sauce. Great leftover as well.
Not bad, but needs more spices.
Family favorite. I bought rotisserie chicken from Costco and used the meat from it to make the enchildas. It was tender and perfect. Great recipe!
I have added this recipe to my book of favorites! I followed other reviewers advice and added a can of chiles but I accidentally bought mild enchilada sauce so they didn't have quite the kick I usually like. I will note that they were not good the next day as leftovers so next time I make them I'll be sure to invite company over for dinner. Overall great, easy recipe!
Never made Enchiladas before. My family liked this very much, my kids even took the leftovers for lunch. Making again for the 2nd time. Thanks!!
I made this for dinner last night and my husband loved it. He said it was the best enchilada he's ever had. I did make a small change to the recipe. I shredded the chicken and added some taco seasoning to the meat/sour cream mixture like other reviews recommended. In a word - delicious!
Switched the flour tortillas with corn tortillas (lots leftover from a previous meal) and still turned out awesome! Whole family loved them!
made essentially as stated with the exception of making my own creamed soup (MUCH healthier) and added extra spices-- garlic, cumin, etc. would DEFINITELY make again!!!
I hate to be the person to ruin the five star rating, but neither of my kids ate it willing (3 & 1 1/2), and neither of them came close to finishing it. I thought it was great, so five star rating from me. The lettuce added a nice crunch to it. I was a little hesitant to try this recipe because I got so burnt out on enchiladas that called for cream of chic and sour cream. But I think the refried beans and red enchilada sauce were a great addition and the creams didn't seem as overpowering. Thanks for a quick,easy and great recipe.
Great! I substituted low fat options where I could.
Great recipe. I added taco seasoning to the chicken for an extra kick. Thank you for sharing this one.
Loved this recipe! I made a few changes accidentally - but ended up loving them! I put the enchilada sauce (I used the powder mix) into the mixture with the chicken and sour cream. DElicious! I also poured a little bit (mixed some water) on top of the tortillas with the cheese. I didn't use the refried beans, onions, olives, or lettuce. And STILL it was super yummy. :)
I made this two nights in a row. The second attempt was much better. I had a whole lot of chicken mixture left over. I used white Mexican cheese and a LARGE can of enchilada sauce and it made all the difference. I also bought the 10 inch tortillas b/c the store didn't have any smaller ones. I have a family of four and I had enough chicken mix to make 20 enchiladas. I boiled a whole chicken. I will be making this again
I made a 6 lb chicken last night and I had someleftover that I shredded and used in these enchiladas. They turned out amazing. I wasn't sure about the cream of chicken soup but it was great. I will definitly be making this dish again it is truly the perfect rollover meal.
These are great, but they are better with a can of green chiles mixed in with the soup mixture. I also don't think the green onions, olives, or lettuce is necessary. They have a tendency to be soggy if you add enough sauce to give it flavor, so I suggest making just enough for that day rather than for leftovers. A very good dinner idea--served with Mexican rice, guacamole, and tortilla chips.
Very good. Excellent way to use up leftover chicken. Very creamy/cheesy/saucy.
I didn't care for the blandness of this dish. We had to spice it up with jalapenos and some red pepper. I suggest adding a bit of taco or chili seasoning to the chicken while cooking. And I'll leave out to soup next time, or change it to nacho cheese soup. It was just ok.
HUsband gave it a 5 star rating, said it was better than any enchilada he's ever had..restaurants included. Made it with shredded pork loin and a mild green chile enchilada sauce. Yummo!!
This is a very mild version, and could easily be spiced up with some salsa, but my family enjoyed it just as printed. Delicious.
This was by far the best enchiladas ever! I am from southern California, and I know good enchiladas, even my friends said they were the best they ever had. Don't change a thing!
I've made these many many times. A couple alterations: fat-free cream of chicken, fat-free spicy refried beans, use shredded rotisserie chicken, spicy red enchilada sauce, nix the shredded lettuce, add green chilies, and serve over rice. Love it, and it's great leftover. I think I might make this again tomorrow night!
It was good just nothing to rave about. Leftovers were not to good.
My family loved this recipe and it has become frequently requested. I added green chilis to the sour cream mixture. I doubled the enchilada sauce and dipped the tortillas in the sauce before wrapping & poured remainder on top. I omitted the green onions, olives & lettuce but added jalapenos on top. I also used a mixture of cheeses (asadero, montery jack & cheddar). Excellent!
I didnt have quit enough sour cream so mixed in some french onion dip. Came out delish! Very simple and tasty recipe and my 5yr old (picky!!) loves it! :)
Was a good meal. Very satisfying. Will make again.Have already recommended to a sister.
OMGOSH - this was so good. Definitely COMFORT FOOD. I topped it with the Red Enchilada Sauce by Sal from this site. I will make this on a regular basis. So good and very easy. Thanks Julie.
WOW! This recipe turned out great. I went with some others suggestions and added green chilis to the chicken mixture. I also added 1/2 tsp each of cumin and chili powder to give some extra mexican taste. I will definitely make these again, especially for my next dinner party.
This was so easy and very tasty.
agree with the others to add green chilis, but it was so easy!
This was a fantastic recipe! Simple, basic, not expensive ingredients. I added it to my recipe book and will definitely use again!!!
Excellent recipe. Only changes - I made this without refried beans and olives because I did not have any on hand.
The Best Ever! Did not have gr. onions and used a savory chicken rotissorie...Gone quickly!
Absolutely delicious! My family loves it! I'm always looking for new recipes & this is one of the best I've come across on here, by far. You don't need to change a thing to this recipe if you just follow the directions to the tee.
Really good dish.. Used left over wild turkey… think any poultry or even pork might work. Used a homemade "Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce" from All Recipes since I didn't have any bottled. This casserole was much better as it sat for awhile.. Wait 15 minutes at least before serving for best results. Really enjoyed this.
As far as presentation goes, I don't think mine were the prettiest enchiladas I have ever made but they were delicious. It seemed to me that the refried beans made the recipe - I would definitely not omit it.
Great recipe. This was my first time at making enchiladas and my family loved them! I added a half a pack of taco seasoning to the chicken and soup mixture. Can't wait to make again.
This was super tasty! I left out the refried beans because my husband doesn't care for them. I added green pepper to the filling too. Yum!
This was very tasty. Everyone enjoyed it and even the leftovers tasted great.
This was very good. I made a few changes - mixed some salsa with the enchilada sauce, added green chilis to the chicken mix. I really liked the lettuce. It added a great texture.
Delicious and easy! Next time I will add some taco seasoning as some others suggested. I used light sour cream and reduced fat soup, along with Mexican blend shredded cheese. Very, very yummy!
Really like the Creaminess of the chicken filling!
I made this dish for my best friends, and they absolutely loved it!!! The day after I made it, one of them told me he had dreams about them and wanted me to make them again :) Excellent recipe!!!
This was really good. I did add green chilies to the chicken mixture and it added some great flavor. I also make my own enchiladas sauce, so much better and really easy to make. Great recipe, everyone loved it!
really great and really easy!
This was really delicious!! The soup and sour cream mixture looked a little unappetizing at first, but once combined with the chicken and baked, it was yummy! I grilled the chicken with some taco seasoning for a little something extra, and also added diced tomatoes to the top during the last few min of baking...definitely will make this again!
Ok idk if its me or these enchiladas but I followed the recipe to a T except added green chilis. No not good at all. But then again every recipe that I have been trying off this site has failed.
Super simple and quick way to use leftover chicken. Used half of a Costco Roasted chicken and with the suggestion of others added some cumin and chili powder. Both my husband and son went for a second serving so i know this recipe is a keeper. Definitely adding this into my dinner rotation.
I had some leftover rotisserie chicken that I wanted to use up so even though I didn't have all of the ingredients for this recipe I winged it. Subbed a can of drained, rinsed black beans, smashed up to which I added a bit of garlic powder and taco seasoning & about a teaspoon of sour cream to make it smooth and spreadable. Didn't have the enchilada sauce so I used Picante Sauce & had no green onions/lettuce. Followed directions and they were yummy! DH enjoyed them, even the leftovers were great. This recipe is very forgiving ~ enjoy it!
This recipe was awesome! My family and friends loved it (even picky grandchildren went back for 2nds). The best chicken enchiladas I've ever had. Thanks for sharing Julie.
Pretty good. The soup/sour cream mix ended up being a bit too much so I might reduce next time. I added a can of green chiles to the chicken mix. Overall very yummy, I might also try it with verde sauce next time.
Really yummy way to use all the ingredients I already had in my pantry. The lettuce was a nice crisp addition. I also added a can of green chilies to the chicken mixture.
Wonderful Mexican comfort food. I don't review if I change the recipe, followed recipe to the letter, did convert to 4 servings. The only thing I will say is recipe didn't state degree of enchillada sauce, I used medium, great for my family, but might be too "hot" for some or small children. WONDERFUL RECIPE.....
This is now a family favorite!!!! The only thing I would do different is cut back a little on the chili powder. EXCELLENT!
REALLY salty...but has great potential. I'll use low sodium, reduced fat cream of chix soup next time and less sauce...
LOVED THIS RECIPE! We got a bit of a late start last night, but decided to go ahead with the recipe - it was quick and easy to put together and get into the oven. Based on some of the reviews, MDH added a couple of shakes of cayenne and that was just enough to give a moderate zing. We'll definately make this the recipe for the second use of roasted chicken. YUM.
PERFECT just the way it is!! I also made cheese enchiladas following the same recipe just left out the soup and chicken and they came out great! Will definitely make again.
Just made this for dinner last night. I used a mexican blend of cheese and also added come cumin to the chicken mixture. I would've added diced green chilies if I had them. I will be making this again!
Really enjoyed this- very moist! I did substitute plain yogurt for the sour cream, did not add onions or lettuce, and used a 19 oz. can of Enchilada sauce.
I broke my ban on recipes using condensed soup for this one - and it was worth it! I used Pepper Jack cheese for a little extra kick, and these were great.
My entire family loved this recipe. Even my 5 year old. My husband even brought leftovers to work today.
really good! We loves it! I used whole grain tortillas and didn't put the beans on the inside but served them on the side. I also added some cumin and chili pepper to the soup mixture before putting in the tortillas.
Followed the recipe exactly, just didn't use lettuce at the end. added some sour cream on top, and it was delicious.
My husband and I are living in Australia for the year, and we've been craving good Mexican food!! I decided to give these enchiladas a try (since I could actually find ALL of the ingredients here - there are very limited choices for Mexican food!) and they were awesome! We LOVED them and completely got our Mexican fix! I added chopped jalapeno to the sour cream mixture and then added the green onion, lettuce and tomatoes to the top after they were done baking. This will become a staple for us - even when we get back to Texas!
This is a good recipe base, but I made a few changes. Omitted the refried beans, chicken soup, and sour cream. Added a few more chicken breasts and cooked with taco seasoning and cherry tomatoes from the garden. After rolling tortillas I always toast them in a hot skillet a few minutes before baking.
Excellent recipe! I did a few things differently to suit my own taste... doubled the chicken soup and added tomatoes and cliantro. Very good!!
Delicious! Didn't make any changes and they were fantastic!
I can't believe how good this was! I did add a can of green chilies, but this was the only change I made. My family loved it and it was so easy.
The enchiladas tasted pretty good, but the structure of the recipe made it difficult to follow. Only one step for all that assembly? Spread the beans on each tortilla first and then combine ingredients to make the chicken filling? No nutritional info. I used corn tortillas and added green chiles to the filling.
I think these are so easy and so good! They have become one of my favorite things to make. My family prefers chicken to beef just about any day but they get tired of the same old casseroles. Thank goodness I ran across this recipe, LOVE IT!!
Love this! So easy and delicious, it is in our regular rotation now.
I had to sub salsa for enchilada sauce (forgot to pick up sauce!) and you couldn't even tell. I put the leftover filling over the top of the enchiladas and omitted the olives. This was easy and delicious!
Added onions when cooking my chicken. Otherwise followed the recipe. It was easy and delicious!! Will definitely make again! :)
This was a great and quick meal! I also used all low-fat ingredients (cheese, sour cream, beans, soup) and used whole wheat tortillas. I added the chiles to the sour cream and it did add a needed kick! Used precooked chicken from the grocery store that had been soaked in Mexican spices, so that was an extra plus!! Great recipe!!
My family loved it everyone over ate including my picky 3yr. I added some chili peppers in 1/2 of them, for those in my family who like it a little spicy.
Easy to make. Delicious. A crowd pleaser.
So easy to make and delicious! Our family loved them. I followed the directions exactly. Wouldn't change a thing.
Really delicious and EASY! I didn't care for the cream of chicken soup, and scooped some out. Next time I will omit the soup. Also the flour tortillas are too glue-like, ya gotta use corn tortillas. Worth making.
