Try this and loved it but totally changed it according to what ingredients we had. We used corn tortillas a fourth of an onion a fourth of a green pepper a full cup of enchilada sauce no corn and no cilantro. Yeah! Big changes but other than that we followed the directions perfectly. The only changes we would make now would be to add a little more salt and chalula sauce. Oh ps. We fried the tortilla shells but probably not necessary. Read More

My family loved these enchiladas. I cooked a bag of frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot and used half for this dish and half for another. I also used frozen corn and green enchilada sauce instead of the red. Read More

Great recipe. I used a can of white kidney beans as I was out of black beans. I used a small can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies as the basis for my sauce. These were great. I must have used larger onion and more corn because I had enough enchiladas to fill a 9x13 pan. Family loved them and so did I! Read More
