"I loved this recipe. I used the same ingredients but increased everything for a larger serving. I skipped the milk and added more cheese on top. Excellent, I also did not put green onions on top."

"Made exactly as stated. Filling was dry, no seasoning and there was no sauce for the top of the enchiladas. If I did make again I would have to season the chicken and make a sauce for the top."
