    Kevin Young's Note:

    I don't know if the truly orthodox cooks of Mexican food would call this authentic, but I find it to be very good and haven't got any complaints when I make it. If you like spicy food, sub jalapenos for the bell and serano peppers.

      Sounds Great But so high in fat. also try chopped califorina green chilies mixed in with the chicken for added flavor.

      I enjoyed this dish very much. The chicken cooked in the broth was fantastic. The chilli added a kick to a tasty dish. What I did was used low fat versions of the cream and cheese but that was a personal preference for our family. I hope that didn't alter the flavour of the dish to much Kevin? Even with the low cal ingredients it was rich and creamy. This is a filling dish with kick and flavour that will leave you satisfied. I served this with a salad. I used Karen in Colorado's [recipe=24296] Corn Tortillas/Taco Shells[/recipe] recipe for the tortilla wraps.

      An excellent dish which my wife and I enjoyed very much, although I, too, would suggest using any alternatives which would help to lower the grams of fat. Attempting to eat three of the enchiladas was just way too much for me, even though I tried very hard!! (And this from a guy for whom the managers tremble when I walk into their all-you-can-eat establishments!!)
