Favorite Creamy Chicken Enchiladas Recipe

Publisher Photo
"This casserole has so much zesty Mexican flavor that my husband doesn't even realize it's a low-fat dish," says Shirley Meyer of Alden, Minnesota. "With its creamy sauce made from soup and cheeses, it tastes like a calorie-laden meal when it's not."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 13, 2014

"Tried this tonight with some left over roast chicken (probably a little more than the 2 cups called for). Added the Rotel tomatoes with chilis that says "hot" on the label. Didn't have any mozzarella cheese so grated some pepperjack cheese and used some sharp cheddar that I had on-hand. Also added a can of drained sliced olives. WOW! was this good. My husband, who wouldn't eat an enchillada if his life depended on it said to keep this recipe and make it often! We really enjoyed it and will definitely make it often. Served it with a can of re-fried fat free beans that I dressed up with salsa and topped with cheddar cheese. A great meal."
