"Wonderful flavors and easy to make! This dish will become one of our weeknight staples!"
"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!"
"I doubled the recipe for my family of 5 and didn't have any left they enjoyed it so much! Very easy to make as well."
"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."
