Reviews for Creamy Chicken Enchiladas
"Restaurant flavor at home! So easy, it's a keeper!"
"Ok, so... I just made an account so I could write a review on these. Yeah... that's how good these are. And that was 2 years ago! Sadly, I haven't made them since then. I made them for my CNA class of about 10 (me being a student) at the end of the course for a little potluck that we had after our clinicals were over. Everyone LOVED them and at least one of those people wasn't too fond of enchiladas. My instructor even took some home for dinner!! I lost the recipe a few weeks after that and am so glad I was able to find it so easily today!! I will be making a pan of these for the office staff at my workplace, a whopping 4 people, and a few friends that I have mentioned these to in the past. I have no doubt that they will be a big hit once again!"
"Made 4 extra pans to freeze for later. We went through all but 1 in 2 weeks. They are terrific!"
"My wife's not much of a Mexican food fan, even though it's one of my favorites, but she liked this for a change so that's always a plus. It was pretty easy to make too. All you need is some tortilla chips and homemade salsa to go along with it!"
"This is sooooo good."
"Tastes like a Mexican restaurant right in your home."
"I made it for my Bunco. Everyone loved it!"
"Family loves it! I add a little spinach to the chicken filling!"
"My family loves this dish, I've made it several times now. Having 2 pans of it helps too since we have a big family & I usually have to double or triple recipes. Thank you for submitting this recipe, Suz"
