Reviews for Simple Chicken Enchiladas
"THIS WAS A GREAT chicken RECIPE....THANK YOU...SONNY"
"These sound really good! Has anyone tried these enchiladas with corn tortillas? I have a very severe gluten allergy and I can't have flour tortillas."
"Very nice flavor. I added some cooked rice to make it go further. Family loved it."
"Flour tortillas are going to become gummy tortillas when combined with liquid ingredients. Use corn tortilla for the best results."
"these were really good i used refried beans instead of pinto beans"
"These were really good. Kids ate them without complaining so that's a win!"
"what if you do not have pinto beans but refried beans can they sub for the pinto beans?"
"Yum! Glad I made a double batch right away so I have one for the freezer!"
