I did not like them so wet. I would half the enchilada sauce and try cooking the rice in the chicken stock if I decide to make these again.

This recipe has a good flavor and I will try it again, but with corn tortillas. The flour tortillas turned gelatinous. Also, I would like it with guacamole, sour cream and salsa!

This was very good, but next time I'm going to sauté the onions so they aren't as crunchy . My husband and daughter don't like onions so they wouldn't eat them due to the crunchy onions.

My family LOVES this recipe, but I suggest using the broth to make the rice and not using cooked rice + broth as the recipe suggests. It turns out VERY watery if you do this. Also, I use black olives, not green olives as seen in the picture.

This is seriously one of the best enchilada recipes I've ever made! The green enchilada sauce makes this fabulous!!! I did add an extra tsp of cumin and some hot salt and pepper. My family ate it all and asked for more! Want to add that it does take longer than 40 minutes to prepare, but it is SO worth it!!!

I also used chicken instead of turkey and it was wonderful. The fresh cilantro makes all the difference!
