    Dottygumdrop's Note:

    I adapted this from a recipe I saw on TV many years ago, which used egg and sour cream as the filling. This is a big family favourite, which is easily adapted by adjusting the heat of the enchilada sauce (I like to use Texas Red Enchilada Sauce #42094)

      These came out creamy and tasty! I left out the cilantro (personal preference) but otherwise made as written. I seasoned the chicken with taco seasoning and then baked in the oven before dicing it up. Made this with bottled enchilada sauce from Trader Joe's. Made for Fall 2012 PAC.

      Very good recipe. I used the remaining of fresh chives I had from my garden since the nights have begin to freeze. I used Enchilada Sauce for the enchilada sauce. Next time I'll use less cilantro since this is quite overpowering. Thanks Dottygumdrop :) Made for PAC Fall 2011
