Just made this recipe today, I'm giving it a 5, which I suppose is "cheating" because I did a few things differently. Thanks to all the reviewers for the tips! I cooked the chicken the day before in my crockpot w. chicken broth, onions, garlic, 5 hours, then it easily shredded. As 2 of the 3 who would be eating this meal cannot tolerate much spice, I left out chiles & jalapeños. Also made the sauce last night, chopped up a little red bell pepper, white & green onions, 6 cloves of garlic, plus 1.5 tablespoons of a packet of taco seasoning while the cream cheese was melting. Had Mexican 4 Cheese shredded, so used that. By doing the sauce ahead of time, the flavors have a chance to really meld together. Today, I let everything get up to room temp before putting it together. Sprayed the dish and used red enchilada sauce to lightly coat the baking dish, then rolled everything in corn tortillas, drizzled more enchilada sauce on top along with Evaporated milk; baked 20 minutes covered in foil, 10 without the foil, then let sit for a few minutes. I served with Mexican rice, not homemade, will try that next time! We all agreed, even the spice loving one, that the level of spicy was perfect. We all had seconds and we have plenty left over! By the way, I baked these in my toaster oven, worked like a charm!
