    Chef #738454's Note:

    The red pepper sauce on these chicken enchiladas really makes these stand out. Easily prepared and healthy! If I don't have leftover chicken, I use 3 chicken breasts (about 1.3 lbs). I throw the chicken in the microwave with 1 Tbl. water in a covered glass dish. Micro High 5 minutes, turning once. If more time is needed, I micro 50% power for 2 more minutes. I like to shred the chicken with my fingers, but if I'm in a pinch for time, I just chop it in small dices. Another hint is Azteca tortillas have 2.5 grams of fat--kind of a middle ground for tortillas, not fat free, but not full fat!

      This recipe was genius! My only wish was to have more sauce available since I love love love my enchiladas smothered in sauce. Five stars for a 5 star recipe!
