    Kay14's Note:

    I love this chicken enchilada recipe and if you used reduced fat cheese and wheat flour tortillas it becomes a healthier dinner. The best part is if you use a Deli chicken half the work is done for you because you don't have to worry about cooking the chicken and it always has such a great flavor to it!

      Very easy and QUICK. I used coriander (cilantro) paste because every store I went to was out of the fresh stuff. And you will need TWO tomatoes for this recipe. I'm always looking for a way to use up leftover chicken and the rest of the ingredients are things that I keep in the cupboard. Thanks for a fantastic recipe.

      A very tasty meal one of our favorites. I also use the filling for stuffed Poblano Peppers.

      I have been making this at least once every 2 weeks for over a year now! One of my husband's favorites, and only 5 Weight Watchers Points Plus when using all fat free (Cheese, Tortillas and Refried Beans). So easy and quick for our busy family, and I've even added a small can of green chilis, and chopped green onion to the mixture. Thank you for such a pleasing, filling and healthy recipe!
