We all enjoyed this flavor; however, it was very very mushy. We didn't care for the texture at all. Thanks for posting!

This is the second time I have made this and everyone loved it! I used half and half instead of cream, probably could go even lighter and use lowfat milk. And I prefer red enchilada sauce over the salsa verde, and that worked great. You can double it really easily so it's good for a crowd. Great recipe!

This is quick and easy. Family loved it - you could probably use half and half instead of cream to cut down on fat - or low fat cheese. I made it exactly as written and it was VERY good.
