    Deb's Recipes's Note:

    Easy to assemble, deliciously creamy and a great choice for once-a-month cooking. And there is NO canned cream soup in my enchiladas -- Hope you give them a try!

      I followed this recipe to the letter and it was PHENOMINAL! Why do people have to "tweak" recipes? And then how can they rate your recipe as a "5" if they're, "I added this, and left out that". Aren't they then rating their own recipe? I regress...GREAT DISH, Deb.

      I just made these tonight and they were SO SO SO good!! I added a little cajun seasoning to the chicken while it was cooking with the onions to give it extra flavor. The other thing I did that was not mentioned in the recipe but suggested by other reviewers, was to add a can of Rotel to the sauce mixture. I used the Rotel tomatoes with habenero peppers to give it some extra spice. It turned out to have such a great flavor! Much better than anything I've had in Mexican restaurants. Thank you so much for posting! This will be made again real soon!! :)

      These were so good (and probably so bad for you, but so good!) My husband usually eats dinner without much fanfare but he couldn't stop commenting on how great these were. I blended up my canned chilies in the food processor to better distribute the flavor and that worked out quite well. Might even use an extra can next time for more spice.
