      Reviewed for ZWT 7 - these were perfect. I loved that the sauce was home-made and made the recipe exactly as stated (but for using two gluten-free tortillas for my serve). The sauce was really tasty and I think it was what made this recipe so good. Photo also to be posted ( but please change the pic default back to French Tart's amazing photo )

      ABSOLUTELY delectable! And, so easy to make! I LOVE enchiladas and I was waiting to make these with some cooked chicken I had left over from a Sunday roast!! I shredded it and adjusted the times slightly to take into account the fact that the chicken was cooked - the creamy tomato sauce with jalapenos was amazing! I opened my last tin of jalapenos for this, and it was well worth it - they are hard to source in France! LOL! Made for Cheese and Whine for ZWT5 - I loved these Dana darlink!!! FT:-)
