This made a great filling meal and was easy to make. I like that it is something different from the usual enchiladas. Very tasty, cheesy and comforting. Thanks for posting!

Mmmm, we loved these easy enchies! Couldn't be easier to put together and bake. I used tortilla chips, slightly crunched, instead of corn torts, and I cheated and used canned chicken. Sure made it a quick meal! This one's a sure thing for busy people! Thanks, Kim, another 5* winner outta you! Thanks, Laudee

Excellent enchiladas! These were super quick to assemble and tasted great! I used a full 1 & 1/4 pound package of chicken breasts (cooked and shredded). I also used Sargento's Mexican Blend Cheese. Thanks for sharing a great recipe for times when you're in a pinch for a quick and delicious meal!
