MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2016

"These had a good flavor but when I eat Mexican food I expect heat or at least a hot dish. There was no need to cool these because they were not hot to eat. It was more of lukewarm temperature when served immediately. The one reason for this is due to the coldness of the sour cream. I did make chicken strips and laid them on the tortilla and then added the mixture on top of that. This allows the chicken to be spread evenly and I like bigger chunks of chicken in my Mexican Enchiladas."

"I made this for company and everybody loved it. I used green onions instead of regular onions, and thought they added a nice touch. Also, I got 16 enchiladas out of this recipe. Great recipe!"
