Reviews for Makeover Chicken Cheese Enchiladas
"I did use half fat free sour cream and it worked fine. these were awesome even better the next day."
"To make even healthier I use whole wheat tortillas and substitute the sour cream with non-fat plain greek yogurt. These are extremely easy to make and taste delicious."
"Brown your chicken in either taco seasoning or enchilada seasoning, like Schilling"
"A serving is 2 enchiladas. Just have one and you're fine."
"The easiest way to make this recipe healthier is 1/2 the cheese and sour cream. Carb wise, use smaller tortillas... Otherwise, Yum!"
"i spiced up mine by adding some chopped jalapenos with the mixture and pan frying the chicken in crushed red peppers and i found some jalapeno chedder wraps that make these perfect."
"It was a little bland for my tastes so I think the next time I make this, I will add some seasonings to spice it up."
"This is def a family favourite! :) It's a lil fatty so I only make it once every 2 weeks.... we've not once had leftovers. mmm DELISH! Instead of buying Monterey Jack & Cheddar Cheese I just buy a bag of Mexican Taco Cheese and it makes this recipe twice as good!!!"
"Very good and easy to make, I will make again!"
"i thought it was rather blah. lacked flavor. if i was to make it again, which i probably won't, i'd add some hot sauce or chili powder to the soup mixture. maybe some canned corn too."
"This is a great recipe. It is quick and easy."
"Love this great idea to using leftover chiken and making a new change in menu! The low fat items DID NOT take away from the flavor. I will make this again, and again....Barb"
