    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!

      These were delicious enchiladas. They are rich and cheesy, and very filling. I substituted a 14-1/2 oz. can of undrained, "petite diced" tomatoes for the fresh tomatoes. Also, I topped the enchiladas with Mexican 4-cheese blend cheese. My family loved these and I will definitely be making them again. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

      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.
