      This is the best enchilada recipe ever, making good use of leftover chicken--both dark and white meat. It makes enough for leftovers which happen to freeze very well, for a future fast, tasty meal! I tend to sprinkle more cheese on top than the 1/2 cup but we love lots of cheese. I also put a good sprinkle of oregano in the cheese mixture, along with the cumin. I serve it with my Spanish rice, and topped with guacamole--heaven on a plate!

      These are amazing!! I have made this recipe for a couple of years and am just now getting around to review them. I use green enchilada sauce but otherwise make the recipe exactly as written - I wouldn't change anything else!! My whole family loves them. Thank you for posting your recipe!!

      Made this using tortilla #50820 and enchalada sauce #395141 and it came out fantastic! The only change that I would make would be to thank I'fortuna chef #1900559 for the zaar mail about how to use the mole sauce. This was amazing...and enough for six people. Thank you for posting!
