Yummy is right Inez! Soft and savory with a very creamy topping is what makes this recipe special. I wanted something easy, quick to make, with no sacrifice on taste. Your chicken enchilada recipe was all of these and more. The chili powder was a nice splash of spice without overpowering the mildness of this comfort food. I made an additional pan for dinner the next day, and left the cheese off until just before baking (it took about 25 minutes in a 350 oven to heat through.) The flavors were deliciously marinaded together overnight, and it was wonderful! I used Sargento mexican cheese for the topping. It contains monterey jack, cheddar, queso quesadilla and asadero cheeses. I shredded the chicken instead of dicing just for a quicker prep time. I also substituted lower fat cream of chicken and sour cream for the "real stuff" and could not tell the difference! The outcome was a scrumptious dish that I will make again and again. I can't thank you enough Inez for posting this wonderful recipe!

I am always resistant to any recipe that calls for "a can of" anything, especially prepared soup, but I whipped this up the other night for family and it was a huge hit. Very good, going to make another batch tonight!

Excellent as is, but I made a couple of changes the second go around. For one, I didn't have cream of chicken soup, so I used cream of celery. I used corn tortillas instead of flour. I also had some Trader Joe's enchilada sauce (red) and added that across the top. It was a little different and very, very good.
