      These enchiladas our outstanding! In my opinion, the cilantro and cream cheese kicks it up a notch from ordinary to extra special. I added a can of rotel to the diced chicken mixture and also a little extra cheese. Thanks for a great recipe!

      I have now made these several times and they are now a favorite. They are so good and so very easy to make. I do add 1 whole chopped onion (personal taste preferences). I have also made with corn tortillas with great success. Thanks so much Evelyn - you have another winner here!!

      Excellent yet again Evelyn. We only had hot salsa at home so I used ripe fresh seeded diced tomatoes ontop instead. I will definitely make again.
