    Absolutely wonderful! I added a can of drained black beans, only because a friend was here for dinner and requested it. Such an easy, delicious recipe. Thank You for sharing Karen!

    Quick weeknight supper; very yummy. Truly threw it together within a few minutes and it was on the table in thirty minutes. I used flour tortillas because that's what I had on hand, layered chicken and cheese like recipe says but had leftover Championship Bean Dip from youth group event and added that it as well. Hubby gave it a "thumbs up" and I'm glad to have another easy and delicious weeknight dinner to add to my mealtime lineup.

    My husband, who is not really a Mexican food guy, had seconds. I used the Hatch Green Chile enchilada sauce. It had just the right amount of kick. The only thing I did different was add some sliced cherry tomatoes which were left over from a Christmas Eve relish tray. I wanted to boost the veggies. I served it with the leftover ranch sour cream dip and shredded lettuce.

    I tried this but changed it to a beef with red sauce because I had it handy, but used the same method. I served it with tortilla chips,guacamole, and rice and beans. It was awesome! Next time I will try it the original way,when I have some chicken to use up.

    This was so easy and tasty. It is just myself and my brother so was great for 2 meals apiece. I added some corn and topped with diced green chilies instead of olives,{personal preference}. Served with sour cream and diced tomatoes. YUM!

    This was delicious and easy. The man doesn't like pies, so I rolled them up in tortillas like enchiladas and it was wonderful!!

    We were having company over for dinner that included a couple of pre-teens, so along with what we had planned, I wanted to make something easy and kid-friendly too. This was perfect. I had roasted a whole turkey breast a few days prior, so I used that instead of chicken. It went over well with the kids and the adults! It was gone in a flash. Next time I'd like to add a couple of things that other reviewers tried, like black beans and sour cream. This recipe is definitely basic, but easy, quick and good go a long way these days.
