MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2014

I have made this a couple times and it's very good. I usually shred my chicken and then add some chopped onions and a can of green chilies to the chicken. I also use the green enchilada sauce, but that's just personal preference.

Thumbs up from my husband. I did add about half of an envelope of burrito seasoning to the refried beans and 1/4 cup of finely chopped onion to the chicken mixture.. That really gave a nice flavor boost.

My family loved this! I made it with fat free cheddar cheese and reduced fat sour cream so it was healthy as well as delicious. Thank you.

This was REALLY good and creamy. I love chicken so using it to make these was better and I think healthier than beef.

This recipe was super yummy!! I added a few spices to the chicken (as it seems like many others did too) but otherwise followed this recipe exactly. My husband loved it! We will definitely make this again.
