Very Good! I probably used more mushrooms than called for and used diced olives but otherwise followed the recipe exactly and we enjoyed them.

These are really tasty! I liked having something different than the same old enchiladas. I had a little more mushrooms and probably a little less chicken (4 oz can mushrooms and 6 oz pkg pre-cooked chicken). Used whole wheat flour tortillas and because they were larger than corn tortillas I only used six. Also, I didn't have any broiler-safe casseroles so stuck them in the oven for 15 minutes at 350F until heated through & melty. Thanks so much for the recipe!
