These chicken enchiladas put a little zip into any menu. The rolled tortillas are filled with a hearty mixture of cheese, chicken and green chilies and then topped with a creamy sauce and more cheese. I sometimes use leftover turkey instead of chicken. —Karen Bourne, Magrath, Alberta

"Zippy and tasty. Easy to prepare. I reduced the cheese just a bit to accommodate my diet, but we didn't miss it. Husband thought it was great. I'll make it again."

"I made the recipe Saturday night for dinner and my husband loved it. I made 8, saved four for another meal; two for dinner and had two for lunch on Sunday. I used cumin. Still great. This is a keeper."

"My family loves this for dinner. However I do use cumin in it instead of coriander. And I also make a little more of the sauce and pour over the top of the enchiladas then shredded cheese. Always a big hit."

"I made this for dinner last week and it was nice and simple and delicious! My family liked them and I had a ton left over (I had enough filling 18 enchiladas) so I froze them. I will probably substitute cumin for the coriander next time and I also agree with other reviewers that it's nice that the sauce didn't contain a can of soup like so many other recipes."
