Made this for the first time and thought it was awesome. Cant believe it has gotten such bad ratings. Better than any I've had at a Mexican place.

i did this a bit different and a bit more healthy! i added some fresh kale and garlic in with my onions. and instead of using sour cream i used nonfat plain yogurt. i also use mozzarella cheese. (it was what i had, and a little healthier) very tasty!

My kids call these 'Gringo Enchiladas'. They say that these are definitely not the kind their friend's mother's make. But for something different and for a sauce out of a can, they work in a pinch. They are a whole lot easier to make than the traditional enchiladas......

quick, easy, but missing something, i added the green enchilada sauce which made it a bit better

I made this tonight exactly like the instructions and it was very very dry. Sure is missing something

Good eating here!!! Light....heart and stomach/pouch healthy. Great for Gastric Bypass Folks!!! Please see the pics and web site. The sour cream in the Green Enchilada Sauce is a must. I only used a 1/2 can of the cream of chicken soup. That sauce is the key to me. The next batch I will make more sauce to put on the individual serving. During the 25 minutes at 350 degrees the Tortilla's suc up the sauce. I think a side of additional sauce is a must! Those things were Great! Thanks for the idea and help.

Very tasty. I added in some extra seasonings, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of onion power, and a dash of garlic. I also added in some extra cheese. These turned out great. Had the perfect amount of kick to them. These chicken enchiladas match up with restaurant quality. They actually taste quite similar to the Mexican place here in town. I don't think much could be done to make them any better. Thanks for sharing with us.
