I made these, but with red enchilada sauce instead of the velveeta. The combination of cream cheese and salsa was really fantastic!

Awesome enchiladas Queen Jelly Bean! The salsa and cream cheese gave the chicken such a unique flavor that my family loved. The velveeta cheese was a nice change from the cheddar that I normally use. Thanks, I will make these again! Made and reviewed for AUS/NZ Swap #14

Very nice change of pace for enchiladas in this house! I used shredded chicken that I had in the freezer & coupled that with a mild chunky salsa! Preparation was easy & the resulting dish very tasty! The cream cheese & Velveeta added a nice variation, too! Many thanks! [Made & revieved as a tagged bonus recipe from one of my invitees to AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #14, Mar 08]
