"I thought this was just okay. The sauce tastes exactly like the sour cream sauce from On The Border. I know that most people love it, but I guess it's just not for me."

"This was yummy!!! I even forgot to get coriander at the store and made it without it. Can't wait to see what kind of flavor it adds! Yummy! I got a roisterer chicken at the store for the chopped cooked chicken."

"I added some chopped jalapenos as we like dishes a bit spicy. I really thought it was easy though and will certainly make it again."

"Great enchiladas! Good for us, as they only make four which is plenty for just two of us. I boiled one large bone-in chicken breast half, and it yielded just enought meat for the recipe, so they're economical too. Easy to put this recipe!"
