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!!)
I don't know if this 'authentic' or not either, but it was nice to find a recipe for chicken enchiladas that didn't include a cream of 'something' soup in the ingredients. I was able to make this for my daughter who cannot have gluten and the rest of the family could eat it also. The flavor was excellent and it was easy to prepare. This is a keeper, thanks Kevin!
I used the full fat whipping cream and regular cheddar and served sour cream to spoon over the top. These were FANTASTIC1 Instead of the peppers, I used a can of chopped Ortega chilis. The flavor was amazing. DH thought they were wonderful. We had a nice little salad and refried beans. This is a wonderful recipie and we had enough that there's enough for another meal.
Susi-Q, A serrano pepper is a chili pepper. However, yes you are right, you can certainly use a different green chili, although if you're suggesting that, why not also suggest a specific variety.
