Chicken Enchiladas for Four Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

"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."

"I doubled the recipe to make for my family last weekend and they loved them. I have Crohn's disease and can't eat overly spicy food. This was just right, not too spicy."

Reviewed Jul. 13, 2014

"This was very, very good and very easy! I used corn tortillas instead of flour because we do like them better and used cumin instead of coriander. I agree with the comment that it's nice it doesn't call for any soup. I had some fajita chicken breasts that I cooked and shredded which gave it even more of a spicy flavor . Very yummy. This will be one of our favorites . . . thank you for a great recipe!"
