    Ridgely's Note:

    This is a great recipe for chicken enchiladas. I got this recipe several years ago when I worked with a local celebrity chef, and this is his recipe. I have however, made some necessary changes to make it not so high in fat. And 1 enchilada will fill you up!

      Very good. It only ended up making about 8 enchiladas. I only used one can of mushroom soup and I think that was more than enough. I think with two cans it would have been way over creamy. All in all, I thought they were very good. Tasted like good family Mexican restaurant enchiladas.

      I made half a recipe, used shredded pulled pork but made the rest as written. Great flavor and I loved the sauce. It is a very filling recipe and we only ate half a one each. Served with Mexican Salad.

      This was a really awesome recipe, I loved it. Its nothing like I've made before and to be quite honest, its not what I was really looking for, but it came as a great surprise. The only mistake I made was not rolling up the enchiladas, I was low on time so I just made it as a casserole, tortillas (I used corn), chicken, sauce mixture, mushroom mixture, cheese and on, on it went until the dish was full. It was really good but at the end it had too much liquid, so next time, I'll follow the recipe as is! The sauce mixture is what really makes these enchiladas so great and I bet this mixture would go great in MIGAS, its a very popular breakfast down here in South Texas, so come Saturday morning, I'm going to give it a try; I can't wait. I also didn't cook the mixture for 1 hour, again I was short on time, it simmered for only 30-40 min and it still came out great! Thanks for this recipe, my DH and I will be using it over and over again.
