This is one of my favorite meals. It is creamy and delicious. The chopping can take a bit of time, but you can also use a food processor. This is such a versatile recipe, you can substitute and omit whatever you want from it, and it still works out.

This was pretty good. Needs some major seasoning to make it perfect. Make sure to add your favorite seasonings to taste to the mixture. I used white corn tortillas and it worked great. Pan fry the tortillas for about 4 seconds per side in oil and drain them on a paper towel to soften them and make them easier to roll. Also, add more chicken to cut down on the sogginess. Once you do this, you will rate 5 stars.
I reduced the recipe by half and while very good I found it excessivly moist. The enchiladas were swimming in creamy sauce. So much that the tortillas were soggy. Maybe it was in the reduction of the amounts or the unspecified size of the flour tortillas. (I used 6 inch) Next time I will adjust to use less sauce, but otherwise the flavors are good and the recipe easy to make from pantry staples. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
This was great! My family loved it and asked for it again not even a week later! We served it with additional salsa dolloped on top. I'm making a double recipe tomorrow and I'm going to freeze some for lunches! Thanks so much for sharing.
