    ChefMarvelIris's Note:

    This is a recipe from an old diner on Mustangg's Island, off the coast of Corpus Christi, TX. I often make this without the chicken but with extra Jack cheese. I also make it as a layered casserole if I'm feeling too lazy to roll the tortillas

      Classic Tex Mex recipe. I took the chef's advice, happily, and layered as a casserole instead of rolling enchiladas. I used probably just 2 cups chicken, 12 ounces green sauce, FF cream cheese, 10 corn tortillas, 8 ounces cheese, 1 cup fat free sour cream in an 8X8" dish. Also sauteed raw chicken with the onion in olive oil. Would say it serves more than four this way for sure. Garnished with roasted jalapenos and cilantro. Wonderful comfort food.

      I really don't like to give a bad review but I followed exactly and this was very blah. Even my grandkids wouldn't eat them.
