This is not a "traditional" Chicken Enchilada recipe- it uses flour tortillas and two types of cheese-very rich-and is very flavorful.Hope you enjoy.

Hubby says "it's a keeper!" to which I add my bravos as well. Can't wait to try them with seafood!

Made this as written for DH and myself tonight - very good flavor - it was a bit spicy for me as I bought hot green chilis (canned) but DH really liked it - next time I make this, and there will be a next time, I'll either purchase fresh green chilis or used the mild version in the can. Very smooth and tasty. Thanks for posting Peggy Lynn.

W O W I felt it needed a BIT more salt, but it was great for someone like me with G.I. issues.. DH wanted it spicier, but tough! lol Thanks, will use again, and again, and again!
