“This recipe is so quick and easy, and I always receive a ton of compliments,” writes Kristi Black from Harrison Township, Michigan. “It quickly becomes a favorite of friends whenever I share the recipe. Modify the spiciness with the intensity of the salsa and the green chilis to suit your taste.” TIP: Kristi suggests serving her Easy Chicken Enchiladas with sweet corn cake for a “really yummy” summer spread!

"We have made this many times and it is delish! It is actually tastier than many enchiladas I've had in restaurants. I always make a double-batch because my busy family demands leftovers of this great meal to have handy!"

"This recipe comes together quickly with leftover chicken. The salsa and cream cheese makes an interesting base. You can kick it up with pepper jack cheese and fresh peppers. I really enjoyed chopped fresh tomatoes and green onions on top."

"Didn't care for the flour tortillas. Corn tortillas would have been better, I think. Filling was just okay."

"This was really good! I divided it up between two 8x8 pans so I could freeze one and I used turkey instead of chicken and a little extra enchilada sauce because I had some. I love that this used ingredients that I had on hand so I didn't have to buy a whole bunch of extra stuff."
