Really great! I used nonfat neufchatel (aka fat-free Philadelphia) and low-fat Weight Watchers. It made 12 enchiladas, They were filling enough that 1.5 satisfied me and 2.5 satisfied my husband. I didn't have to soften the flour tortillas; that's usually only necessary with corn tortillas. To cook the chickien breasts, I put them in a sprayed dish with a couple Tbs. of water; cooked at high four about 8 minutes (covered). Let them sit a few minutes before shredded. The meat was finished (no pink juices) and yet still juicy in the finished producct. I think these may be good with a little fat-free sour cream and a touch of cayenne pepper in the sauce. We'll definitely be eating these again.

These were great. I used leftover chicken and it was that much easier to put together. Will be making again.

This was yummy. An easier version of other Swiss enchilada recipes. I jazzed up the filling with some onion, garlic, anaheim chillis, and broccoli, which turned out quite well.
