Reviews for Chili Chicken Enchiladas
"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."
"Very good...I doubled all the ingredients and substituted cumin for the coriander."
"Delicious! I double the recipe for a 9X 13 pan."
"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."
"This recipe is easy, filling, delicious and one I'll always hang onto!"
"This is my absolute favorite Enchilada recipe!!! Love it!"
"Delicious and easy to make. Prep time took a little longer than the stated 20 minutes, but definitely worth it."
"I added a shake of red pepper. Used swiss cheese (that was all I had). Everyone loved this recipe. Will make more and put in the freezer for a busy day!"
"These are so yummy. They are also very easy to prepare. Didn't have to change one thing in the recipe. I make a double batch every time. AWESOME!"
"very good, but I'll cook them for twenty five minutes next time. They seemed a little cold in the middle!"
"Very good. We have made this serveral times!"
"Very Good, easy to make and with most items on hand. I used cream cheese instead of sour cream, I also added some peppers out of my garden as well as the tomatoes. I also added a 1/2 of can of the Red Enchilada Sauce."
"This recipe has become one of my favorites since the first time I made it! Its rich, and very authentic, and not difficult to make. Everyone who I've made them for loves them! I make them at least once a month and they never disappoint."
"We've made these enchiladas a dozen times since the recipe appeared in the magazine last summer - authentic taste, but different from the usual versions one sees out there. Happily, no prepared sauces or soup mixes in this one, and the taste reflects that. Thanks for sharing Alicia!"
