The whole family loved this recipe!!!
My family did not particularly care for the consistency of these enchiladas. We found the chicken mixture rather soupy and actually used a slotted spoon to dip the mixture onto the tortillas. The flavors are good, but we will most likely not make this recipe again.
So delicious!!! I also used a cheater chicken that I shredded and it turned out amazing!! This recipe is a keeper.
VERY easy to make; great taste! I used shredded rotisserie chicken and I spread refried beans on the burrito style shells rather than using pinto beans. I think that chopped onion would be good in the chicken mixture as well.
We love this easy to make recipe. I have had many compliments for it. I use left over rotisserie chicken (shredded) and use the big flour tortillas because it is easier to roll and fold them on the ends.
