    peppermintkitty's Note:

    This is a sure hit for Mexican food lovers, potlucks and when you don't have time to make authentic enchiladas. I'm not sure where I got this, as the first time I made it was over 25 years ago. I believe it came from a ladies club cookbook they sold for money for charities. You can use hot peppers, mild or leave them out all together. The topping is so rich 'n creamy and you don't need to mix it. This is my family's favorite 1 dish meal. Very easy to prepare.

      Delish! My family loved it! We used flour shells and diced tomatoes with chilis in them so it wouldn't be too much heat for the kiddos and it went over like mad! I would suggest letting this dish set in the oven turned over so you aren't scooping out mush...though it was yummy mush! :)

      This is one of our all time favourite recipes. If I don't have cream of chicken soup on hand I've thrown in cream of mushroom and it tastes just as good. Thanks for this one. Excellent.

      Made this last night for my husband , who is originally from the Southwest and always begging me to work more authentic tasting Mexican into our menu. He loved it! A little messy to serve but definitely yummy. I'm sure I'll be making it again soon.
