I LOVE chili verde and order it whenever I can at restaurants and figured out how to make an easy, tasty version at home. People have the option to eat the chili verde with a fork or in tortillas with a variety of toppings such as cheese, cilantro, minced onions or lime wedges. There are never leftovers at my house.—Julie Rowland, Salt Lake City, Utah

"Delicious and to those posters who think this is bland be sure you get the hottest enchilada sauce you can find and it should be plenty hot for you. I think the extra sauce is fantastic as there is plenty to run down into the rice you serve it over."

"Rated 4 stars but with several changes because I thought it was bland and way too much liquid. Poured out about 2 cups of the liquid,added a teaspoon chili powder and a cup of heavy cream. Delicious !"

"Family loved this, but I found it a bit bland. Maybe the brand of enchilada sauce I used wasn't the best or something."
