      I made this a while back and forgot to review-sorry! This is one of those "comfort dishes" to me, not too spicy or exciting but it really hit the spot. Thanks!

      I used to make this recipe years ago but misplaced it in relocations. Every recipe on-line just wasn't the same. Thank goodness I finally found it again. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful (too much wonderful?)! Anyway, thanks for posting it.

      This easy, delicious recipe pleased even my very picky "meat and potatoes" husband. I forgot to add the sour cream, and it was fine. My husband added some sour cream to the top of his enchiladas. I purchased pre-shredded chicken breasts and it was SO easy!!
