Reviews for Marvelous Chicken Enchiladas

Followed recipe and loved it! Will try some variations to change things up next time. Love fresh cilantro, and my men-folk eat anything with corn in it!
These were a lot more work than my regular enchiladas, but a great different taste.
After reading all the wonderful reviews, I can't help but wonder if I did something wrong? I followed the recipe word for word, but to me it was very bland and a little dry too. The chicken mixture was tasty by itself though. Unfortunately, I don't think I will make this one again.
Made this for friends and everyone loved it! Instead of the tomato sauce & regular salsa I used Mrs. Renfro's jalapeno salsa, which gave it a spicier kick.
Very Good, I substituted a few things though... Instead of uusing coriander, I used Paprikia. I also substituted ketchup for tomato paste, and had to cut out the green chilies. Unfortuneately, it took me an hour and a half to make :( BUT, it was very good, and everyone who tried it was very well pleased.
