"This is a good substitute for chicken enchiladas, and is somewhat spicy."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

My family has recently started trying to "lose our winter fat" and this was a very filling,
"fat friendly" welcome addition to our dinner table. My children all loved it, and I have
four children, so that's really saying something!!
Not very flavorfull at all. My family was disappointed.
My husband told me that I hit a home run with dinner tonight - and he's a picky customer! The only thing I did differently than the original is frying the tortillas in some conola oil. It adds calories but helps them hold their texture in the casserole. They wont be crispy - but they wont be mushy either. I dabbed the extra oil from the fried tortillas with a paper towel to keep the calories down.
Excellent--I'm always looking for good recipes for chicken left-overs. Great flavor. Didn't find it mushy at all--the tortillas helped thicken the sauce. Smooth is a better description.
I used cream of chicken soup instead of four and broth. Also add some sour cream, taco seasoning, a little tabasco sauce. Quick and easy!
Delicious! It looked kind of boring coming out of the oven but wow was it tasty! I only made a couple changes to work w/ what I had on hand. I omitted the small can of green chiles, used flour tortillas instead of corn and threw in a couple dashes of hot sauce. Kids won't eat it but husband will love this!
YUM! I loved this. I like it better than enchilladas. I added cayenne pepper and it still wasn't what I would call spicy, but it was delicious. Next time I might use salsa instead of tomatoes for extra flavor. It seems like a lot of tortillas when you're assmbling it, but don't use less - you really need them all. And pile on the cheese! This recipe is a bit of work, but should get easier and faster with repetition. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I think it will be on regular rotation in my household!
Excellent casserole with low calories. It turned out spicier than I thought it would be, but we like spicy so it was perfect! Followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect.
