I used flour tortillas and thought these were great! I did add some spice to it by adding about 2-3 TBSP of jarred sliced jalepenos to the enchilada sauce/sour cream mixture adn used the new Sargento Spicy Mexican Cheese in the filling! It was great! I think you could easily shred two chix breasts into this or use a pre done rotisserie chicken in the filling!

Freakin' great! Followed except used whole wheat tortillas, and added some cayenne and jalapenos to the spinach/cheese mixture to give it a boost. Felt like it needed just a bit of kick. Great recipe, and loved the cream cheese in the mixture. Thanks for posting!

Not enough flavor for me. The sauce tasted great though.
