"Great recipe - BUT - I did add to it...When mixing cream cheese and chicken I also added a can of diced chilies and also a small can of black olives.. As for the chicken - I used the ready-cooked chicken (southwest flavored) strips ( the ones that come in a bag) and diced them - was fast easy and convenient. A nice quick and easy Mexican "fix" I also poured a little green enchilada sauce on top before adding cheese."

"Very good. My husband thought it was too rich with the cream cheese, but I loved it. It was even better for leftovers. I definitely plan to make again just so I can take it for lunch all week."

"I loved these. I have been searching for a good chicken enchilada recipe for a long time. I didn't think there was enough of the salsa and sour cream mixture though. Next time I will make a little more so the enchiladas aren't as dry and they have a little more flavor."

"I wasn't really impressed with this recipe. We love cream cheese, sour cream and cheddar. It was kind of bland to me."
