"These are really good. I made half recipe and made two changes. In addition to seasonings in recipe, I added some fajita seasoning to my chicken while cooking and used Jalapeno flour tortillas. Off the chain."

"these are really good. I always halve the recipe. I don't use a whole can of chili's either because I don't like that much spice, I usually wind up using maybe a 1/3 can, otherwise it's as written. I've made this recipe a few times- It's tasty"

"Ok I made this 2 days ago. You have 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, 2 cups of sour cream, and one cup of milk - a pretty large amount of liquid. These were very very delicious but I couldn't use them the next day. The liquid soaked into the tortilla and they just disintegrated and made a huge globby mess. My advice is to eat it all, or halve the recipe. It will not hold up to reheating. :-("

"It's a keeper! My family really liked this:) I halved the recipe (I was only making it for three people and I wasn't sure if it would hold up for the next day). It made seven tortillas and cost around $10 to make. I didn't tweak this recipe much. I did season the chicken with salt and pepper while cooking it. For the sauce that goes into the chicken, I did not have onion powder so I used 2 teaspoons of the Cumin instead of one. The sauce that goes over the top is quite a lot. Even halving it, i only used about half of that sauce. I took the half can of the remaining rotel tomatoes and chilies drained it and topped it when finished cooking along with chopped cilantro. I've shyed away from making enchiladas because in the past I've made them and they were soggy. However this recipe the bottoms were nice and firm. Follow the directions and DO NOT put sauce on the bottom of the pan, I was debating whether or not and definitely glad I didn't. Can't wait to make again! As the other reviewers stated it does taste like restaurant quality. Very delicious!"
