These were GREAT! Recipe looks complicated, at first, but really isn't. Used pulled meat from a roasted chicken and didn't really do any measuring, just eyeballed the ingredients. Hot rice and black beans on the side, mmmmmmm

This was great!! My picky husband, who is from Mexico City, even liked it. Great recipe! I used fat free refried beans on the side instead of the black beans. This one sure is a keeper.

We loved this! I spaced out while making this and accidently mixed all the sauce with the chicken and spinach and then had to make a second batch of sauce to go on top. I'll probably always make it this way now - it was saucy and delicious - not a bad mistake after all!

We enjoyed this recipe tonight and it was a winner with the family. We used the black beans on salsa on top and wouldn't have it any other way. A great way to get some extra spinach in the meal! Thanks for sharing!

Really good!! Hubby said a MUST to make again. I did make a few changes. I used fresh spinach and wilted it with sauteed onions and fresh garlic, Cajun seasoning and chili power before mixing it with the cooked chicken and 1/2 of the sauce. I put the cheese on the last 5 minutes of baking. Thanks for sharing!!

Simple and delicious. I used a regular sweet onion, as it was all I had on hand. I also admitted the green chili peppers and black beans because I didn't have any. This still turned out great! Served it with a side of salsa and tortilla chips. Thanks!

A very tasty recipe! We made a few without spinach for my son and then mixed in the spinach for my hubby and I. Can't wait to try the leftovers tomorrow!

I really, really like this recipe. No cream soup but yet you don't even have to cook the sauce in advance. My enchilada's turned out great. I would also like to try the same recipe modified into an Italian version using manicotti noodles,mozz cheese and Italian seasonings in the sauce (no green chilis of course). I will be using this for many years to come.

This was really yummy. First off, I cooked the chicken in a skillet to brown it insead of boiling it in water as the recipe suggested. I also added an absolute ton of chili powder, garlic powder, and cajun seasoning (of my favorite brand). I knew that with the spinach and mild sour cream sauce, this would need an extra kick. I also used the same seasonings in the sauce. Insead of adding cheese just on top, I added a little bit to every enchilada, and I also sauteed some onions beforehand until they were translucent (making sure to season them also) and added them to the enchiladas. Everyone really liked them, and I already want to make them again. They also made very suitable leftovers. Another note---I used all fat ingredients, none of that low fat stuff!
