"This is a really good recipe. I did make some changes for a few reasons. I used canned chicken breasts because I was trying to test to see if this would be easy enough to make while camping. I still cooked it in the pan with garlic it just didnt cook as long. I doubled the garlic.. we are garlic fans round here. I used green enchilada sauce in lieu od picante sauce. I like it better. I also mixed in a few tablespoons of sour creme in with the 1/2 cup enchilada sauce to make it more like chicken sour cream enchiladas. I also, based off another enchilada recipe I had my eye on spread the bottom of my baking sheet with a small layer of sour cream before placing the enchiladas in the pan. Next time I make this I am omitting the red bell peppers... I ended up picking them out and my husbands wasnt a fan of them either... I will probably put in diced onion in with the chicken and garlic in lieu of red bell pepper. We are also big fans of onion around here! ;)"
"Hopping on the bandwagon... these are some tasty enchiladas! I subbed regular onions for green and upped the garlic, but didn't add any cheese inside the enchiladas (I didn't have enough, and I figured it would be lower-calorie that way anyway.) I like a creamy enchilada, so I worried these would be dry, but they tasted divine. The little bit of bacon gave these a great flavor. Thanks! This will go in my recipe rotation."
"This was a great recipe! I've made it a couple of times now and both times everyone really enjoyed them!"
"This is so good. We used the picante sauce and then also put a can of enchilada sauce on it too cause we like them saucy and it was a bit dry for us but other than that is was a awesome dinner!"
"I was REALLY surprised with how simple and delicious this recipe was! I substituted bacon bits to make it even easier and it was a hit with the family. I've made it twice now and have added it to my cookbook. Thanks!"
"What a fantastic dish! I used green pepper and it worked out fine. Thanks for sharing."
"Excellent Enchiladas! I used already cooked chicken breast strips from Costco to shorten the cook time and just heated it thru with the rest of the ingredients. They made great leftovers as well...I had all my coworkers drooling!!"
"This was a big hit this evening! I used turkey bacon and skipped the red peppers. I didn't bake them, either, as I used "Recipe#69612" rather than store bought. I'd say that this serves 4 adults. Yum!"
"WOW, this will be going directly to the favoites book. It was even better reheated the second day. I think it would be great to triple and use for OAMC. I did not use the bacon greese to cook the chicken but thought that there was pleanty of bacon flavor."
"This was a good recipe. I like using the bacon grease to for the chicken, left it really moist. I really don't think the bacon added anything to this dish. I even used good thick bacon with a lot of flavor. At the end of the day, I would leave out the bacon. The rest of the flavors were great. I would add a little more spice (heat) to the dish. I would also saute the peppers with the chicken a little longer to soften them up or use roasted red peppers to really add a great flavor. Overall a good dish and a great starting point for a lot of different options."
"Wow, this was great! I love the fact that this can be made into a healthy recipe. I used low fat cheese and wraps and they were excellent, even for those husbands that don't fancy the "low fat junk" he loved it!! I used chilli powder instead of cumin and I ommited the bacon. I also used (low fat) cheddar cheese because it was all I had at the time. Can't wait till we have it again.... thanks so much!"
"Loved it. It was a hit with my kids and my husband said he felt like he was eating at a mexican restaurant. I used Goya Canned Black Beans and I added white rice and olives to the receipe. I also used Taco Bell Medium Taco Sauce as the picante. I will definitely make this again."
"These were a great hit! Because picante sauce is just a term made up by Pace for their salsa, I used chunky salsa instead. These were great. I will make them again and again. The only changes I made to the recipe were leaving out the bell pepper and the bacon and I also put the cooked chicken in the food processor for a few pulses to sorta shred it. Then I put it back in the pan and added the black beans. Thanks so much for this recipe."
"Funny story - I made this for Freezer Tag 2008 and my ravening horde ate it all before I could freeze it. So - nothing to do but make it AGAIN! This is an absolutely delicious recipe. I used salsa in the enchiladas and enchilada sauce over the top, had green pepper instead of red, skipped bacon the first time and added rice the second time (because I was using leftovers from a weekend fiesta). Either way, any way, whatever you add, these are simply delicious. I froze the enchiladas cooked, then reheated in the microwave for lunch. Very nice! I also froze some extra filling by itself and that worked even better for us. Thanks for a new family favorite."
"I, too, used enchilada sauce instead of the picante sauce. This dish is outstanding. Even better the next day!"
"I used enchilada sauce instead of the picante and it worked just fine. Great & easy recipe!"
"Absolutely wonderful. Do not substitute out the black beans and then insult by reviewing this dish, they are absolutely essential. Serve with Recipe # 255260"
"Very tasty!! I added corn but otherwise stuck to the recipe."
"These are delicious! Not too hot, with good flavor and texture. I added pinto as well as black beans, as I'm a big bean fan. These were great to freeze, too; I made about two dozen and they thaw well."
