    THE BEST chicken enchiladas!! So fast and easy! My sister gave me this recipe years ago and it has been a staple in out home ever since. I often make this for potlucks and it ALWAYS gets RAVE reviews. I get asked for the recipe every time! If you like your food spicy you can use hot chilies and hot green enchilada sauce. I have toddlers, so I have to make mine mild, but it's great spicy too. It is definately rich, but oh so worth it!

      To: GreenThumb;BlackToast The lower fat cream cheese might very well be the culprit. It's a different consistancy and taste than the full fat cream cheese. I make this quite a bit and it's never felt thick or sticky to me. Try it with full fat cc and see how it works for you. Did you also fry the tortillas before you baked them? Good luck. :)

      Didn't care for the thick, sticky texture. Maybe using the 1/3 less fat creme cheese did this?

      ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. This will be a keeper in our house. The only thing I changed was adding mushrooms and onions. Thank you, we will be making this again soon!!!!
