Reviews for Chicken Enchiladas for Four
"My husband just loved it. He could eat Mexican cuisine everyday. This was his favorite."
"Just thought it was OK, definitely no WOW factor. I really liked the ease of making them but the taste was somewhat off -- perhaps it was the coriander. However it did taste better the next day as leftovers. Not interested in making again."
"Tasty and simple to put together, and my family loved them! I doubled the recipe and used sixteen 10" tortillas. I also swapped out the canned Chilies and used fresh Jalapenos and Cayenne peppers from my garden. A keeper!"
"My grandkids loved this. The first time I made this, I rolled the tortillas as directed, Second time I layered the tortillas with rest of ingredients after cutting them in half. Used corn tortillas instead of flour. Will make again and again!"
"Very good and quick. Freezes well."
"OMG- Loved this recipe and my family loved it too! Will be making this again. Thank You for the recipe."
"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."
"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."
