    These were quick and easy, and we really loved them. You can customize based on what you have on hand. I like the yogurt instead of sour cream - my family didn't even notice the swap. If you have the time for homemade enchilada sauce, we like to use http://www.food.com/recipe/mexican-enchilada-sauce-109685.

    These enchiladas were delicious! I used chicken from recipe #33671 that I had already cubed before finding this recipe and it worked wonderfully. I copied "Caroline Cooks" idea and made a sauce from light sour cream, cream of mushroom soup, and canned green chiles since my family doesn't like enchilada sauce. Even my 18 month old ate this up, and this is a very smart way to get her to eat spinach! She already loves black beans, so I added those as well. Thanks for sharing!

PLEASE RATE MY RECIPES!! :) My husband and I have been happily married for six years and we have two amazing children! I stay home with our son and daughter and stay busy in with local mom's groups and activities. I am a certified childbirth educator (bradleybirth.com) and also teach and supervise the Aqua Aerobic department at one of our local gyms. I am somewhat of a health nut/hippee and distribute whole food suppliments (morganlovesjuiceplus.com), but I love to bake and to share my baked goods. There is no better compliment than when some one takes a bite of my very own Chocolate Chip Cookies and says they are the best they've ever tasted! (Sorry, it's a secret recipe!) I would love to open my own bakery someday... I like to cook for my family too, and have become exceptionally motivated since our son was born. I have been finding myself getting swept away reading cookbooks (while the kids are sleeping). :) I am really enjoying trying new recipes (and so is my husband) and I think I am becomming a "Foodie" so Recipezaar is simply heaven for me! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">    | <a href="http://www.facebook.com/business/dashboard/" title="Miracles in the Making Childbirth Education and Support!" target="_TOP" style="font-family: "lucida grande",tahoma,verdana,arial,sans-serif; font-size: 11px; font-variant: normal; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; color: #3B5998; text-decoration: none;">Miracles in the Making Childbirth Education and Support</a><a href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/d41d8cd9/" target="_TOP"><img src="http://badge.facebook.com/badge/0.0.1173522904.png" width="175" height="50" style="border: 0px;" /></a>
