These are great! I used fat free sour cream and made Mesa Red Sauce for the red enchilada sauce. Really flavorful and delicious. Thanks for sharing!
Loved these enchiladas! Full of flavor. I steamed the chicken in my rice steamer to cook it, made it easy to shred and very moist. I will use less onion next time, but that is a personal preference. Great for leftovers!
These Enchiladas were a great low calorie dinner! I substituted Black Beans for the chicken to make it vegetarian and it was super! My husband said to defintily add it to the rotation:)
