These are great for a family dinner or party. I've also cut the baked enchiladas into three sections and served them as appetizers with chips and salsa.—Elaine Anderson, Aliquippa, Pennsylvania

"My husband and I love this recipe, though I make a few modifications: My husband is a BIG eater so I add more chicken and usually make about 12, any leftovers are great the next day for lunch so I don't mind! I also use a packet of liquid, ready to use, enchilada sauce, either red or green, we've tried both and both are delicious, cuts down on prep time. I also like to use red pepper instead of green, I prefer the flavor of the red. We like to eat with homemade guacamole and light sour cream as well. To make healthier, I skip the cheese inside the wrap and just melt a little on top - we don't really notice a difference anyway. Great recipe, we will continue to enjoy!"
