Not too spicy for those with sensitive taste.
I made the following adjustments as well. I sauted my green pepper and onion in a smidge of olive oil and used 2 T butter as the roux base for the sauce mixed with 2 T flour instead of the 1/4 cup flour. Then I used half milk ( 2%) and half stock for the liquid to make the sauce a bit more creamy and smooth. I also used smoked cumin instead of coriander. Cut the sour cream to 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup too since I had a smooth base to start with anyway.
To the chicken vegetable mixture I added some additional spice with a bit of fresh garlic and next time I will add some diced jalapeno to kick it up. My biggest complaint is that the corn tortillas I used cracked when rolled (yes I warmed them). It may have been the brand, I salvaged the stuffing - heated the tortillas until hot and steamy and then rolled them and they were fine.
For cheese - next time I think I will use a blend of jalapeno jack or even some queso cheese.
Certainly will make it again with the adjustments I noted.
This was very bland! We had to cover it with salsa just to give it some flavor.
wow, these enchiladas are terrific! that sauce is what really makes it, and I thought mine were the best, I have incorporated this recipe with my own, and boy-what a match
Very rich flavor. Worth the time tgo make the sauce rather than open a can of dull cream of whatever soup.
