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
Canned soups, enchilada sauce and a few other convenience items make this recipe one of my fast-to-fix favorites. Use mild green chilies if they suit your tastes, or try a spicier variety to give the soup more kick.

These enchiladas are easy to make ahead and refrigerate until you’re ready to bake. After quickly cooking the tortillas in hot oil, I layer them between paper napkins to soak up excess oil.—Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas
"I created these enchiladas to satisfy several picky eaters in our house," explains Stacy Cizek of Conrad, Iowa. "They were an instant hit and are now requested at least once a week. I especially like that we can enjoy this meal twice by freezing half for a later (and busier) day."
I get great reviews every time I serve this— even from my father who usually doesn't like Mexican food. My husband and I have two children and I enjoy cooking, cross-stitching and painting. —Nancy VanderVeer, Knoxville, Iowa
This is one of the first recipes I created and cooked for my husband right after we got married. He was so impressed! We fix these creamy enchiladas for friends regularly. —Melissa Rogers, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
I love this enchilada recipe because it helps me serve a healthy but tasty meal to my family. Also, zucchini is so plentiful in the garden and this dish makes a great way to use it up. —Angela Leinenbach, Mechanicsville, Virginia
