"Mild, but very tasty chicken Enchilada dish."
Serving Size: 1 (302 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"To make this easier, I tear the tortillas and layer them in the dish with the sauce/chicken."
"This is a five star recipe but unless you know what you are doing, you can get into trouble. For instance, it calls for 1 cup onions but does not tell you that they should be sliced, diced, minced or whatever. It also calls for two cups of chicken or turkey but does not advise that this is already cooked and diced. That's my two cents worth. Keep up the good work Merv"
"Made this with chicken, cant buy tins of green chillis here so I used fresh. Loved the flavours, and so did my picky teenager. Thanks for sharing. =)"
"We're used to the typical Texmex or Mexican enchildas and this recipe is really different and delicious. It has great flavor! I used flour tortillas, but will probably use corn next time. I found that the fresh flour tortillas absorbed so much of the liquid they became too doughy. Evenso, they tasted great because of the wonderful sauce. We loved the filling, too. I will use spicy green chili peppers next time - but that is just a matter of our spicy taste preference. I highly recommend this recipe."
"I've finally found my go-to chicken enchilada recipe! Thanks! Changes I made: Added 1 poblano plus one jalapeno (incl all ribs and seeds) into the green pepper + onion mixture. I used low fat sour cream in the sauce as well as pepper jack cheese. I added fresh cilantro over the enchiladas upon serving. I liked the idea of garlic from other reviewers. Also - my flour tortillas were high fibre cilantro + pepper. The enchiladas had a lot of kick this way! Will absolutely make this many many times more - using high fibre tortillas and low fat ingredients plus extra peppers for kick."
"This is a very good recipe. The sauce is what makes it so delicious. However, cut the salt by half or more. The other ingredients (like cheese or the cooked chicken) add salt. Also it needs a little heat, the poblano, as suggested by someone else, is still not enough kick. Very good though."
"Very tasty. Used flour tortillas will use corn plus will make spicier next time Pickie 15yr old would not try. Adults liked it."
"This was totaly great. I made this to take to work and so glad I did. I ended up working a 12 hour shift and I had this for lunch and dinner. Everyone that tryed it loved it. Only thing I did different was that I added no green peppers and I added a can of enchilada sauce to the top then added cheese on that. Eating what is left of it right now and it 7:02 in the morning. mmmmmm so good. I will make this again."
"One of the best dinners I have ever cooked. I doubled the recipe and followed it exactly. I froze one tray and served the other for dinner. My family loved it. I have always been intimidated about making chicken enchiladas and this was a snap."
"Made this 1 week ago and it was fantastic. I am not a fan of Mexican foods but wanted to try something different. This was it. Only thing I did was add a few slices of chopped up Jalepenos from a jar to give it a kick. They were actually better the next day. I took extras to work and shared lunch with some co-workers. They all asked for the recipe !! I also used fresh chicken that I boiled and added some perdue ready chicken I had left over as well. This was SOOO delicious and will become a regular with me !!!!!! Thanks Karen !!!!"
"I had some leftover turkey from our holiday dinner and I chose this recipe to make something different with it. Very yummy, a bit rich, but really good. I served this with spanish rice and refried beans. Thank you for sharing."
"This was delicious. We're not into spicy/hot meals and we found this recipe to have a perfect combination of flavor and mildness from the peppers. I even at leftovers for breakfast the next morning."
"This was very tasty. I used corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas and omitted the ground coriander (didn't have any). My kids ate it without complaint, which makes it a winner in my book. It was better the first day as the sauce thickened after refrigeration. I made enchiladas but had filling left over so I spread it on top of the enchiladas and tore up some more tortillas to go with it, then poured sauce over it all. Next time, I'll just tear all the tortillas and mix it all together."
"I am from Texas, and sour cream enchiladas are a staple offering at many restaurants and I love them. I have never been able to find a recipe with a sour cream sauce that did not break apart into little curds, until now. This is the best sour cream sauce recipe I have tried, and makes a very good enchilada. Thanks!"
"I made this recipe to use up some leftover turkey. I used a Mexican blend cheese and reduced fat sour cream because that is what I had on hand. Quite honestly, we are so used to reduced fat that often if we go out the whole fat version tastes odd to us. Even with the reduced fat sour cream, the sauce was still nice and creamy. DH gave it four stars after adding hot sauce otherwise the family gave it three stars (i.e. good)"
"Yum, yum, yum! I made it exactly as directed; only I used plain cheddar cheese. Oh, I did change up the spices. Coriander? Don't have any. I put in some taco seasoning (Penzey's 'Arizona Dreaming- 2010). Just taste the sauce before you put together the dish! (I had a hard time adding all the liquid at once- usually that would make it lumpy! But it did work with very few lumps, none of which were noticeable in the final dish.) I made it a day ahead for company. Great recipe; thanks for sharing!!!"
"They were OK, I think if I ever make this again I will thin out the sauce some more and not use so much of it to cover the enchiladas."
"outstanding! Only change I made was to use pepper jack cheese to spice it up even more!"
"Family loved this! Thanks for a great recipe! Only thing I really did different was use Pepper Jack, because it's what I had. UPDATE: Made this again tonight. Grilled the chicken with a Tex Mex blend of spices. Really added some umph! Great dish. Also, with the sauce....taste before adding to the dish. We found we needed a little more salt and pepper, and added just a dash of Cholulu for some added flavor. Turned out spectacular! For what it's worth, Pepper Jack is a really nice dash....good flavor, and not hot...just another layer of flavor."
"Wonderful recipe! Quick, easy, and delicious. What a winning combination. As others suggested, I added a huge clove of fresh garlic while cooking the onion and substituted corn tortillas for the flour (family preference). The only thing I regret is leaving out the green chilis. Didn't have any. But that would have taken this dish to the next level. Next time I will be sure to add them. Thanks for sharing."
