Favorite Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

"This casserole has so much zesty Mexican flavor that my husband doesn't even realize it's a low-fat dish," says Shirley Meyer of Alden, Minnesota. "With its creamy sauce made from soup and cheeses, it tastes like a calorie-laden meal when it's not."

    These were fantastic. They were flavorful but not really spicy. That is perfect because I was a little worried they would be too spicy for my two-year-old. He devoured them. I will make these repeatedly but I will change the proportions for our tastes. I will double the filling and use two extra tortillas. They were scrumptious as is but there was a lot of sauce vs. filling.

    Tried this tonight with some left over roast chicken (probably a little more than the 2 cups called for). Added the Rotel tomatoes with chilis that says "hot" on the label. Didn't have any mozzarella cheese so grated some pepperjack cheese and used some sharp cheddar that I had on-hand. Also added a can of drained sliced olives. WOW! was this good. My husband, who wouldn't eat an enchillada if his life depended on it said to keep this recipe and make it often! We really enjoyed it and will definitely make it often. Served it with a can of re-fried fat free beans that I dressed up with salsa and topped with cheddar cheese. A great meal.

    One of the first recipes I made when I received the 2001 Quick Cooking Cookbook and still making these 13 years later. Very yummy.

    This is a wonderful I keep going back to for no fail quick and easy enchiladas. My kids love it too and they can be a bit picky!

    I made this in my Crock Pot! I cooked the canned goods with 3 chicken breasts for 4 hrs on high. I then chopped the meat up right in the crock, and added the rest of the ingredients. I used 4 corn tortillas, cut up into little pieces. I also added a can of corn and french style green beans. I cooked it on high for about another hr or two. Most of my kids had seconds! This casserole was easier than rolling them up. I will make it in the crock from now on and next time I will add all of the ingredients in the beginning to see how it turns out. I'll just have to cut up the meat before serving. It's much easier for me that way.
