    Little Bee's Note:

    These enchiladas are so good and easy to make! This is comfort food! It is pretty rich and fattening so I lightened the original recipe up by using olive oil and lowfat ingredients. The taste is not compromised at all.

      This was really good. I used leftover grilled chicken and used a Mexican blend cheese and used sweet onions rather than green, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. I did use chopped tomatoes, lettuce and some picante sauce for topping after dishing it up. I served it with Mexican Rice, Mexican Rice which was very good also. I will make this again.

      This was such a great dish! I added some chopped red and yellow peppers with the green onions to soften, and also added some jalapeno puree to the sauce for a little more zip. It got rave reviews from all diners. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      Great flavor and easy to make. I garnished the enchiladas with lettuce, tomato, onion, salsa and a few jalapeno slices for an extra kick. We loved this low-fat version of a Mexican classic.
