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.
This was easy to make and my family loved it, even the picky 6 year old!! I substituted black beans for pinto and Queso Fresco for cream cheese (had on hand). It was just delicious. A definite repeater and company worthy!
