Tips

A less spicy version can be made by using a combination of shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese.

Rotisserie chicken can be purchased with different seasonings. Try them!

This was a very good creamy chicken enchilada recipe. The only change I made was to add some hot pepper sauce to the filling mixture. I did have an issue with the enchiladas sticking to my dish even after generously spraying with non-stick spray. I topped with diced onion sliced olives tomatoes and cilantro. Would definitely make this one again! Read More

This was very easy to make and a great shortcut by using the rotisserie chicken. I made exactly as the recipe stated with the addition of adding some sauteed white onion to the filling. I did have more than 1/2 cup of the sauce leftover so I just poured all of it on top of the enchiladas. My family was not a huge fan of these enchiladas and probably would not make again but I do think it would be an easy recipe for a starter cook. Read More

My family loved these. I will say you need to taste as you go for seasoning. Next time I will put 1 cup of sauce on the bottom of the pan. I will also add corn. I added extra cumin after tasting the sauce and garlic salt and salt. My family liked these better than my usual queso casserole recipe. Read More

These came out pretty good! I used chicken breasts diced up in this and omitted the chiles as DH has an aversion to them. They went together very easily. It is a good busy weeknight meal! Read More

Add a McCormick Chipotle Chicken Taco Recipe Inspiration season pack to it and it will give it a more southwestern taste. Im not as talented with tex mex style cooking as I am with others. And this was a very helpful resource. (And an easy cheat.) Read More

I made a bland version of this due my wife's aversion to spices and it was great! I used turkey for the meat. It's very filling. Read More

It was easy to prepare because of the progreso meal starter but it was a little flat on flavor. Adding cilantro would help? Not a keeper for us. Read More
