Angela's Awesome Enchiladas
August 03, 2011

This has been in my box for months and I finally made them yesterday. It is a good recipe in many respects. However, for the time it takes it doesn't deliver enough on flavor. I followed others' advice and did the chicken in the crock with taco seasoning and with a 1/4 cup of jarred jalapenos in juice to up the flavor of the chicken which was excellent advice. When simmering the chicken in the skillet, I replaced the water with a 16 oz jar of fire-roasted salsa and tossed in a can of corn for color and texture. Given the amount of work that goes into it, we were expecting some knock-your-socks-off Mexican flavor. Even with the onions, the chilies, all the seasonings, the salsa and the enchilada sauce, we all found it a little bland. It was pleasant and I'm sure kids and those who don't like spice/heat would love it. But if you're looking for a good solid spicy enchilada, you'll probably be a bit disappointed.
