  10. hope ya like them-- also you can use the hot enchilada sauce instead of the mild, we just use the mild because of my kids-- they love this recipe-- not to spicy for them.

So great. The filling is wonderful. I didn't have green onions on hand so I used chopped red onions. I liked that the sauce was so easy. I did just like you suggested and used one can of red enchilada sauce and then one can of green enchilada sauce on top. I liked that this didn't have a creamy sauce. Made me feel like I was saving some calories except that I added extra monterey jack! I will definitely make again. Thank you!

Loved these enchiladas! I used leftover cooked chicken thigh meat for this. I added a little cumin to the filling and I over-measured that cheese, as usual. ;) These were super easy and delicious. Thanx for sharing!

This is very similar to the method that I use to make my enchiladas. I have recently used Crockpot Chicken Taco Meat (Recipe #4957), but have also used leftover grilled chicken that I have shredded. I seldom use green onion, and instead use finely diced red or yellow onion. I also like to use all red enchilada sauce and combine it with some of my homemade salsa for more of kick. I love chicken enchiladas served with shredded lettuce, diced tomato, more onion, sour cream and guac. This is perfect comfort food for us.
