    TexasToast R's Note:

    I was looking for a chicken enchilada recipe that did not use canned cream soups. After finding one online, I made several changes to make the recipe a little healthier and easier to prepare. I often make with cheese made with 2 % milk to make them a little lighter too. Sometimes I also add pinto or black beans to replace half the chicken.
