    Mmmama's Note:

    This is my favorite, favorite chicken enchilada recipe. It's very quick and easy and people are always asking for the recipe. It's from The Junior League of Spokane's Gold'n Delicious cookbook (one of the best cookbooks ever!).

      This is a great recipe, and a keeper! The instructions were clear and it was very easy to make. I used a little more cheese than called for and 1/2 c. more picante sauce on top of the enchiladas (to make sure the tortillas didn't dry out). The cheese I used was a specialty one we got at Sam's Club (Colby Jack with Habenero and Jalapeno peppers in it). I got 8 enchiladas out of it, and I baked these at 350 for 25 minutes, putting the oven on BROIL for the last 5-ish minutes. My family kept saying how good they were, long after the dishes had been loaded into the dishwasher! I served these with a green salad and Black Beans, and now I am ready to open my own Mexican restaurant. :) Thanks for posting this recipe! Made for Fall 2009 PAC.

      Easy recipe to make and pretty tasty! Good use of some leftover cooked chicken I had in the freezer. I liked the addition of the cream cheese (low fat worked fine). Thanks for posting
