"This is a weekly request at my house. These enchiladas have a white creamy sauce instead of the traditional tomato based sauce. I've been asked for this recipe over and over again, so I thought I would post it. I love Mexican foods, and I think this is a wonderful dish. I hope you do too!"

"This was a great lunch for me!!! I made 1/3 of recipe and used leftover store bought rotisserie chicken for the meat. Followed the recipe with the exception of using flour tortillas and when I topped the casserole, I used a mix of cheddar and monterey jack cheeses to add some color. I was tempted to pre-cook the onions, but didn't, and next time I definitely would, as they were still a little crunchy after baking, but that is the only thing I would change. Made for Stars Tag. Thanks for sharing a great recipe."
"Really enjoyed this and will definitely make again soon. I heated the tortillas in microwave (wrapped in paper towels that have been moistened) for about 30 seconds--saves time and calories. Great hit with husband too!"
"This was really good. I used leftover chicken from dinner last night and followed the rest of the directions precisely. This was very quick and really easy. The canned jalapenos made this a little bit spicier than the kids can handle, so next time I will use fresh jalapenos because they seem to add less spice when I use them. This will definitely be something I make to use up leftover chicken often. Thank you for another great recipe breezermom! Made for PAC Spring 2014."
"I loved these enchiladas! I did have a problem because I decided to double the recipe......the first pan was 9 x 13 and the 2nd a little larger. The first pan was wonderful but the 2nd one was too dry on top and not so good leftover. I've never been good at guessing measurements and I probably didn't leave enough sauce for the top of the enchiladas. I probably spread too much sauce in the bottom of the pan......I would recommend a very thin layer for anyone trying it out. I left out the jalapenos but did use some pepperjack cheese in the dish. I would highly recommend this dish but next time I'll just make one recipe. Thanks for posting. Made for Football Pool 2013."
"Made this for my wife and mother-in-law. Came out very good. Next time I make this dish, I will season the chicken with Mexican spices prior to cooking the chicken. I added salt to the sauce. Really enhanced the flavor. I will also make more white sauce just so I have some for the leftovers. I covered the dish with aluminum foil after it was 3/4 through cooking to prevent the cheese from browning too much.This dish is good served as is or to enhance and experiment with experiment with. It is also good as a leftover. Thanks for sharing this."
"I enjoyed the simple clean taste of this enchilada. Aluminum foil was tented over the top of the baking dish, to prevent the drying out of the tortillas. Removed foil after the 20 minutes, topped cheese and returned to oven uncovered for 5 minutes. Topped with the salsa. Made for a very delicious evening meal. Made for Please Review My Recipe 2012"
"Oh my gosh! I expected this to be great from the reviews but it was even better than I had expected. I had leftover roast chicken that I used and followed diner's thought about pre-cooking the onions, mainly for DH, and that worked beautifully. The flavor is rich and delicious and served with a salad it made a wonderful meal. :D"
"For the sauce I used butter which gave a wonderful rich taste to the sauce. I'm used to enchiladas with red enchilada sauce. It was a nice change. Very yummy. I didn't fry the tortillas. Thanks Lynette :) Made for Photo tag game"
"This was great. I loved that there's no "cream of" anything in it. Very easy to put togethe and reasonably quick, so good weeknight fair. I made as directed, except used fat-free sour cream. DH and DD have "sensitive" pallets so I used green chili's in the sauce and the relish then added a dash ot hot sauce to my plate at the table. I will be making these often. Thanks for the wonderful recipe."
"Loved it! I'd give it 5 stars but my wife out voted me. I used a small can of mild chilies instead of jalapeno peppers and sauteed the onions before adding. I only had 10 flour tortillas on hand and it was plenty. We will definitely be making this again! The tortillas starting getting burnt on the exposed edges - just watch it carefully(:"
"Delicious! Loved the flavors. Omitted the salt (personal preference). Thanks for sharing!"
"The whole gang scarfed these right up! I might have to double it next time so I can have some leftovers for work!"
"These were terrific. I had a bit of a problem in that when I opened my tortilla package all the tortillas had a tear across them. Made for hard rolling, hence the not so pretty picture. However, once cooked they were great. Loved the salsa that goes with them too. Thanks Breezermom. Made for ZWT5."
"These were yummy! I did make a few changes: first, I just used warm tortillas--to reduce cooking time & calories a bit (I do this with all baked enchiladas); I divided the sauce (made w/ homemade stock) in two before adding the chiles and I added them only to 1 half, for the kids; I skipped the onions- taste preference; and lastly I cooked these in the microwave to make them quick. The whole family loved them! Thank you breezermom! Made for the Dining Daredevils & ZWT 5."
"5 stars breezermom! This was really a great enchilada recipe. I used jalapeno-cheese wraps (they are so good) and I also added a can of hot enchilada sauce to your sour cream sauce to give it a little extra punch. Added to my cookbook for family dinners."
"This recipe was really easy to put together,and tastes GREAT! I used homemade stock for the sauce,skipped the water,and used well drained preserved home-grown chillies.It was quite delicious..it had a nice depth of heat without being over spicy,and really creamy. I also used flour tortillas (what I had!). We really enjoyed this,Breezer,thanks for posting."
"The sauce for these is very very good and the recipe went together very easy, the critic in this house gave a grunt and nod while eating (which equates to a five star). I did adjust the filling by adding oregano and cayene pepper to the chicken. I thought the can in the pantry was jalapenos, but instead it was diced green chillis so I used those (next time I will be sure to have jalapenos on hand). I used flour tortillas as a personal preference and did not fry them just warmed them up over the stove flame and filled, then rolled. This is a good recipe for using up that Thanksgiving Turkey, or any leftover chicken. I fixed these enchiladas with Spanish Rice and a salad. I will fix this again! Thank you for posting. breezermom."
"Made these without using the onions. The sauce is WONDERFUL! I also did not top with the tomato mixture.I also added some chili powder to the chicken when I rolled the tortillas. ALso used 2 cups of chopped chicken. Great recipe."
"The sauce for theclear starsse enchiladas was wonderful! I did not use jalapenos, I used green chilis, but other than that I made the recipe as written. We really enjoyed these! Thank you for posting."
"I bought a roaster chicken at Market Basket and brought it home, and decided to make this as I have been craving Mexican again! This was easy to prepare and I couldn't get enough! I used 1 can of canned chilies instead of the jalapenos, and whole wheat tortillas instead of the corn. We enjoyed them a lot and I was told my my friends picky hubby that I can make them again anytime :) So I will!!! Thank you for sharing this with us Breezermom! Linda"
