      These were very good. My DH loved them, and so did I. I used red peppers b/c I was out of gr. peppers. Even my kids like them, and anything with onions or peppers are hard to sneak past them. I used chicken breasts that I chopped up fine and sauted with seasoning.

      This is a very easy recipe to prepare and there are no hard-to-find ingredients. Always a plus for me. I used less cheese and cream cheese to cut down on the fat. Other than that I followed the recipe. I can see why this recipe would be good for gringos and kids. It is very mild on the cusp of bland. I added jalapenios to spice it up. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

      Excellent! I was out of salsa so I used a can of Rotel tomatoes. I thickened the tomatoes that went on top with cornstarch. I used american cheese because I was out of cheddar. My whole family loved these. These are the first enchiladas that I've made, but they will not be the last! Thanks, Pamela
