      This was a great dish. I made it for lunch and we absolutely loved it. I followed your directions, but I added 2 Tbsp. of chopped green chiles. I was not dissapointed with the outcome. DH loved it and gave it his "keeper" review. It was easy to prepare and the taste was good. Thanks for posting. It will be in my T&T book for sure.

      This will be a regular in our house, lots of 'mmmmm's' to be heard. Doesn't say in directions when to add chicken, I did at the end of step 1, also added a shake of chilli flakes. This is a keeper!

      incredibly creamy and yummy! i did the chicken the night before (picked the meat off a roasted chicken and put it in the fridge all ready for this recipe) which really speeded the prep up when i assembled these. because i had 3 cups of chicken, i added in the entire 8 oz of cream cheese and some extra red bell peppers and got 15 enchiladas - enough for a few lucky sons' lunches the next day.
