Seeing as that I was born and raised in Texas I grew up with having the best Mexican food. Now that I live in NC I crave it constantly and the closest I can find is Taco Bell. Now, if you're looking for that authentic taste this is not the recipe for you. However, it is VERY good. After reading a ton of the reviews I did change some things. I think the biggest thing that I changed was I poached/boiled the chicken in a bunch of spices (which included Old Bay Seasoning, dried parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, and a packet of chicken bouillon). After the chicken was cooked through I shredded it and then went on with the recipe.
CHICKEN: I used crushed tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce and also added a small can of enchilada sauce. I omitted the water, bell peppers, and taco sauce. I also added about two tbls. sugar (divided between chicken and sauce) because the enchilada sauce I bought was medium instead of mild. I also added a tsp. paprika.
SAUCE: I used another small can of enchilada sauce with more sour cream and crushed tomatoes.
I served it with refried beans which I think I will include inside the enchiladas next time.
