    FLKeysJen's Note:

    My sister Shawn is famous for these enchiladas, and her husband Rob makes the killer margaritas to match. My husband and I like them with Sangria. It's the ideal entree for dinner guests because it can be completely prepared in advance. You can substitute whatever meat you have...ground chicken or turkey, steak, shredded pork, Krab, etc. as well as any creamed soups. I was even out of sour cream and substituted fat free cottage cheese which worked fine. Be creative and please share your ideas here!

      Man, this was good. Made it last night with all "diet" ingredients. This will go into regular rotation at my house.

      I tried this recipe when my sister came over and she liked it, but I didn't like the texture of the chicken in the food processor. I had chicken enchilda's in Mexico, and I was kind of going by that memory of how I liked them, but the north american version, although I'm sure is tasty, did not appeal to me personally.

      DH really loved these and wants to take some to work for lunch tomorrow. I enjoyed them as well beause they're so creamy and cheesy. Next time I make them, I will use lower fat cheese and add more diced chilies because they have such great flavor. Thanks!
