  1. Delicious recipe - also plan on freezing the leftovers. I topped mine with sliced black olives before baking. Thanks for sharing!
  2. This recipe was delicious! i halved the recipe and still had lunch for my boyfriend and myself. We did, however, accidentally get "hot" enchilada sauce. and it was very spicy!
  3. Easy to throw together with leftover shredded chicken. Made as stated, except only used 2 cups of cheese (instead of 5!) and that was plenty for us. Also there was a lot of filling and it made 20 nice sized enchiladas. Had to fill up a second small pan. Thanks for a easy dinner!
  4. These wre GREAT, Charmie!!!!!!! I made half a recipe and still have plenty for another supper and a lunch! I may freeze a couple to enjoy on a rainy day! ;) :) Easy to make, too!!! :) :) :)
  5. Thank you! We love enchiladas and gave this a try last night. It was easy to make and a very filling enjoyable dinner! ONly thing I did different was that I used flour tortillas because that is what I had on hand. Thank you for posting. ZWT3


  1. These were wonderful! I used flour tortillas instead of corn, 2 chicken breasts (shredded in my Magic Bullet) and 1 box of reconstituted dried refried beans. Oh- and I only had one can of enchilada sauce- but that was okay, I just topped the whole dish with extra salsa instead. We are quite a bit at dinner, and th rest I've put into the freezer and will take to eat for lunch at work.
