This is a good substitute for chicken enchiladas, and is somewhat spicy.

My family has recently started trying to "lose our winter fat" and this was a very filling "fat friendly" welcome addition to our dinner table. My children all loved it and I have four children so that's really saying something!! Read More

My husband told me that I hit a home run with dinner tonight - and he's a picky customer! The only thing I did differently than the original is frying the tortillas in some conola oil. It adds calories but helps them hold their texture in the casserole. They wont be crispy - but they wont be mushy either. I dabbed the extra oil from the fried tortillas with a paper towel to keep the calories down. Read More

Excellent--I'm always looking for good recipes for chicken left-overs. Great flavor. Didn't find it mushy at all--the tortillas helped thicken the sauce. Smooth is a better description. Read More

Delicious! It looked kind of boring coming out of the oven but wow was it tasty! I only made a couple changes to work w/ what I had on hand. I omitted the small can of green chiles used flour tortillas instead of corn and threw in a couple dashes of hot sauce. Kids won't eat it but husband will love this! Read More

I used cream of chicken soup instead of four and broth. Also add some sour cream taco seasoning a little tabasco sauce. Quick and easy! Read More

YUM! I loved this. I like it better than enchilladas. I added cayenne pepper and it still wasn't what I would call spicy but it was delicious. Next time I might use salsa instead of tomatoes for extra flavor. It seems like a lot of tortillas when you're assmbling it but don't use less - you really need them all. And pile on the cheese! This recipe is a bit of work but should get easier and faster with repetition. Thanks for sharing this recipe I think it will be on regular rotation in my household! Read More

I didn't have the corn tortilla's on hand so I crushed corn chips and used those instead. It turned out well and I had a lot of requests for the recipe. Read More
