Feeding a multi generational family that includes 5 adults & 2 kids is quite a challenge. The kids don't like anything and the adults all have varying tastes. However ALL 5 adults LOVED this recipe. The only change I made was to add a little hot mexican cheese to the mix. Delicous.
I was on the hunt for a cream based enchilada from years past that I loved. I came across this one since it was very similar. I made some changes such as I doubled the cream of chicken soup and sour cream. I also added 2 cans of green chili's rather then using the chilli powder. It added great texture and great flavor. Rather then cooking the chicken in butter I used cooking spray. I used 98% fat free cream of chicken soup, lite sour cream and Weight Watcher shredded cheddar cheese. Rather then using the basic flour tortillas I used corn tortillas. This added a little flavor and texture. I recommend heating the corn tortilla in the microwave to 10 seconds prior to putting the mixture in to help roll it so the corn tortilla doesn't tear after being placed in the baking dish. Thank you for posting this recipe, though I made some modifications based off the recipe of olden days, it is still fabulous as is!! This is now one of our favorite recipes!
Loved these Enchiladas. Made a few alterations. Baked chicken in covered pan in oven with salt and pepper and minced dried onions at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Then while that was baking I sauteed 1/2 cup chopped onion in tablespoon of butter and a dash of olive oil until tender. Then took chicken out of oven and sliced thinly and added to sauteed onion mixture. I omitted the chili powder because the soup I used was plenty spicy enough. I mixed one can of Campbell's Southwest Pepperjack cheese soup, 4 oz. cream cheese and 1/4 cup sour cream and a dash of milk for the sauce. Then put together as stated. After putting remaining sauce on top of enchiladas I topped with shredded Mexican 4 variety cheese then baked as directed. After baking then put 2 enchiladas on each plate garnishing with a dollop of sour cream, lettuce and tomato.
I love this recipe! I have been making it for several months. I have used that southwest style pepper jack soup a few times. Kids love this so much and want it I have to try different things so they don't get burnt out on it. Most of the time I have to make a double batch. Any way I make this, if there by chance are leftovers they FIGHT over them. Thank you for posting this recipe.
Fast, easy and tasty. What's not to like. Chicken was moist and flavorful. I used the large size tortillas and Mexican blend packaged shredded cheese. Served with a side of refried beans. A side of fresh salsa would go perfectly with this meal.
Very tasty - & easy to make! My kiddos loved it.
