I just love this simple recipe. And so does my husband.

Good dish, instead of all that condensed soup and sodium I made my own cream soup substitute with sautéed Mushrooms. It’s just basically a white sauce without all the sodium using 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup milk, I added some cream too, butter, and flour, salt and pepper to taste. It worked ??????

Flavor was OK, but even with putting less chicken broth in it as some suggested, it was a real mess to look at. I'm glad I did not fix it for company.

This is a good base recipe. I added my own fire roasted chilies instead of canned and a couple of minced serrano peppers for some heat. Also 2 cloves of minced garlic and 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro. We prefer pepper Jack so I used that instead of cheddar. I served this spicy refried beans. I like that this can be made so quickly and there is enough for left overs the next day.

I bet you could prepare all ingredients, (except tortillas and cheese), leaving chicken raw, in the Instant Pot, layer then place in the oven for just a bit to thicken, and lightly brown the cheese. Thoughts?

I make this a lot. Like everybody else, I did make some changes over time. First, we only like one can of chopped green chilies (mild only), we don't use much of the chicken broth because it makes it too runny and I use more cheese because you can never have too much cheese, right? Everyone loves this recipe.

Delicious! I screwed up and bought tortilla pkg that only had 8 so it was a little runny but that was me, not the recipe. I made only one change - Tex Mex cheese instead of cheddar. Will definitely make again - and again. If you chop the onion fine enough you don't get a separate taste. The chiles give it just the tiniest bite. Even my husband, who is scared of anything new, loved it.

This was great but I took it in a different direction. I put everything but the tortillas and cheese in a Crock-Pot with raw chicken. I also added some cumin and Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy. I cooked on low for 6 hours while I went about my day. I then pulled the chicken out and shredded it. I took out half the liquid and set aside then added the shredded chicken back in and placed it on warm for about 30 minutes to an hour. When ready to finish I preheated the oven to 350 put some liquid in the bottom of a greased glass dish, filled whole wheat flour tortillas with the chicken mixture and rolled them up like enchiladas. Then I ladled some more liquid on top and sprinkled cheese and baked as directed. Put some sour cream and green salsa out for garnish. We loved them!
