This recipe was pretty easy and it was a great hit w/ dad! Instead of sour cream I used cream of chicken soup with a little bit of green chilli enchilada sauce (also used on the top after baking). Also, I didn't let it set overnight and it turned out fine :).

We really like these guilt-free enchiladas! Great mix of flavours and just right seasoning. I substituted red pepper for the pimientos and it was fine. Great way to use up leftover chicken, or turkey for that matter. I served with fresh salsa on the side, although next time I would just add more topping (tomato, cilantro and cheese) to make it that much easier. Thanks.

Makes a very tasty, easy and healthy enchilada. Good use for leftover chicken. I used 14 corn tortillas in a 13x9 dish. Served with enchilada sauce, though next time I may pour some over the enchiladas before baking. Thanks, ellie, for a yummy dinner!
