  1. Very easy! It could use a little more zip - as it stands it would be great for kids or people who don't like spicy food. The only green sauce I could find without MSG was the Archer Farms brand at Target and a 12 oz jar with all other ingredients the same filled 8 six-inch corn tortillas.
  2. I love this recipe because it is so easy and so good. I used the salsa verde in a can from the Mexican aisle at the grocery store. I mixed half of the sauce with shredded chicken and about 1/4 can of black beans which is the mixture I used to stuff the enchiladas, then poured the rest over top. I didn't really dip the tortillas - I just poured a little bit of the sauce in the bottom of my pan to start with.
  3. i love enchiladas and this is a good on . i used chicken from deli . thank you for posting dee
  4. I live in San Antonio and tried this receipe. I served it to some local friends of Hispanic decent( how's that for political correctness) and they thought I had it delivered from a local Mom and Pop. It's a winner
  5. This has become a family favorite in my house! We make some with chicken only, beans only, and some with both. It's great! So creamy and delicious. I've found that it doesn't quite warm all the way through unless you heat up the filling before hand. You might also want to use a medium salsa to kick up the spice a little. Delicious!


<p>I live in Arizona. Cooking is a relaxing hobby and I love finding healthy meals that have a lot of flavor and heart to them. Recipezaar has not let me down. I could not possibly pick a favorite cookbook. I love searching used bookstores for old cookbooks. I collect other cookbooks that look intresting or have healthy dishes. My collection is modest, but I love it. Also, I love the Taste of Home magazines. They have real food that real people cook. I would have to say my pet peeves are people who drive while talking on cell phones and people who cannot spell potato. It is p o t a t o not p o t a t o e. There is no e unless you are spelling the plural form of potato which is potatoes. I frequently see that word mispelled in recipes and it makes me think the recipe is somehow devalued because of the spellings. The Zaar system of ratings works for me. I do try to explain myself in my reviews and welcome any questions or comments on what I have said. It is not my intention to be mean-spirited if I did not like something (it is rare for me not to like a recipe though):) Recipezaar brings such a nice element to my life and I feel it has been enriched by the wealth of knowledge both in everyone's contributed recipes and on the forums. Also, it is such a nice feature that you can log on practically any time to get help with a recipe or ingredient that might otherwise be imtimidating to prepare by yourself.</p>
