Reviews forMarvelous Chicken Enchiladas
"Just tried this the other night. Oh my, hubby and I were impressed with the flavor of the chicken. I used cooked chicken and simply sprinkled the seasonings and flour over the chicken pieces and continued on with the recipe as written. We like to serve our enchiladas over shredded lettuce. Will make this again and again."
"Followed recipe and loved it! Will try some variations to change things up next time. Love fresh cilantro, and my men-folk eat anything with corn in it!"
"These were a lot more work than my regular enchiladas, but a great different taste."
"After reading all the wonderful reviews, I can't help but wonder if I did something wrong? I followed the recipe word for word, but to me it was very bland and a little dry too. The chicken mixture was tasty by itself though. Unfortunately, I don't think I will make this one again."
"Made this for friends and everyone loved it! Instead of the tomato sauce & regular salsa I used Mrs. Renfro's jalapeno salsa, which gave it a spicier kick."
"Very Good, I substituted a few things though... Instead of uusing coriander, I used Paprikia. I also substituted ketchup for tomato paste, and had to cut out the green chilies. Unfortuneately, it took me an hour and a half to make :( BUT, it was very good, and everyone who tried it was very well pleased."
"These enchiladas are excellent! I did not take the reduced fat route.. I chose whole milk and non-reduced fat cheese. The first time I made them with the recommended amount of coriander and the flavor was a little overwhelming. The second time I used half of the recipe amount of coriander and it was perfect. I will definately make these again!"
"I loved the recipe. I added some baby spinach leaves slightly wilted in boiling water then drained."
"These were great! I didn't add any corn and the only change I will make next time is use a lot less cilantro...probably 1/2 - 3/4 less."
"This is a fave of ours. I like to add a can of black beans with the corn. I also add 1 cup salsa in place of the green chilies."
