These were great chicken enchiladas. I omitted the chili powder and I used corn tortillas instead of flour. Rather than wrap them individually, I made this casserole style...a bit of sauce on the bottom, then a layer of 6 tortillas, then the chicken mixture, then another layer of 6 tortillas, and then poured the rest of the sauce on top. Canned green chilis worked really well, plus I sauteed the red onion and garlic before mixing with the chicken. I was afraid it would taste too raw (although perhaps it would've been fine!). Thanks for posting.

DH loved these, that's a wow! I thought they were really good. With that said I had no problem with the sauce. I think some chef's make be cooking it to long. I think it just needs to thicken a bit (still on the thin side.) That's what I did and it was perfect. I did lower the fat by using lite sour cream and 2% cheese along with omitting the butter and using cooking spray instead. Oh, I also used whole wheat flour tortillas. Don't you just hate it when people change the recipe so much??? Well I also only had one tortilla and it was plenty because the filling, filled a lot of tortilla's Thanks for posting. :)

I thought this recipe was too time-consuming and mess-producing for a mid-week meal, but the resulting dish was very good. I decreased the chili powder by half and wish that I had added more poblano. I also microwaved the red onion for 1 minute instead of adding it to the filling raw. The filling was excellent and easy to make. The sauce was a little more difficult and I ended up doing the "taste and add" dance over and over where I kept adding a little of this and a little of that to make it right. Neither the filling nor the sauce called for salt, but both needed a good bit of salt. I served the enchiladas with a side of guacamole salad.

This was really fantastic. I have a 12 year old who is not always the most adventurous eater. I had actually set aside some cooked chicken breast for her to dip in A-1 sauce in case she didn't like this. Everyone loved it! I had fresh poblano peppers from the garden that I wanted to use, so found this recipe. I used a yellow onion instead of red (that is what I had in the pantry) and didn't have any coriander, so I used fresh cilantro also from the garden to sprinkle on top. I have never eaten sour cream before (that I know of) but now I am hooked. I also sauted the onion and garlice before mixing in with the chicken. Thank you for the recipe!

Thank you for sharing! Deliciouso! Only adjustment I made was reducing the amount of chicken broth I put in.

Made these the other night with leftover (frozen) thanksgiving turkey (thought it was leftover frozen chicken...). The flavors were good - DH liked them a lot. I did think it was a bit of work for enchiladas....also thought there wasn't enough sauce. I will definitely make this again - and maybe next time will use chicken and 1 1/2 the sauce. That should work out even better. Thanks for posting!

Loved these enchilada's! I did make a couple of mistakes, but it turned out great! I accidently add the 2 tsp chili powder to the the sauce and I forgot to add the cheese to the mixture! The sauce was still great and I just added the cheese to the top! I used 4 legs and 4 thighs cooked in the oven, sprinkled with fajita seasoning. I will make this again and agian! I also made this with the Mexican rice recipe from this site, http://www.recipezaar.com/Mexican-Rice-117892

This was a very good recipe. It took some time but the flavors were great. I made half a recipe and got four very filling enchiladas. I would have liked a little more sauce so maybe I cooked it a little too long. But will be making again. Great use of leftover chicken or you could poach some just for this recipe. Thanks for sharing a great Mexican meal. Served it with Mexican Rice.
