I loved these enchiladas! The only change I will make next time is to reduce the chili powder and cumin to 1 tsp, just for my taste. I also added sliced black olives to the chicken mixture and served with sour cream and lettuce. Yummmy!!

These reviews crack me up !! Bitchy asses. All of ya !! Good recipe. I enjoyed every drop of that unhealthy canned sodium. And to the person that reviewed without trying. I appreciated your input and thank you for the tip on cosco chicken. To the person spewing over that review shame on you !! Go drink a beer and relax ! Now back to the recipe. It makes a good size amount. The only change I made was from another review on cutting down the cream cheese. Not a huge fan of cream cheese. So it's a personal preference. Other than that it's good ole cream soup casserole sure to please.

I personally haven't tried the recipe yet, but just reading through it will turn out and not disappoint. It reads like a safe casserole that all will be happy with. I heard Costco sells rotisserie chicken already shredded without having to do that part, it's a great hot dish to pass.

People out there, if you don't have something nice to say, PLEASE don't say anything at all. DON'T make this dish if you don't like it.

This recipe is delicious! I fixed it for a birthday/pool party. It is a keeper! Everyone loved it and I had no leftovers and I served BOTH casseroles. Maybe next time one will be able to be frozen! Thanks for a great recipe.

Ok so I’m not sure why people review items they haven’t made. No one cares if you “think” it’ll taste good or bad. We read reviews to see what people thought after they made it and what changes they made or would make next time. Also no one care if you decide if this is healthy or not. We have eyes and can read the ingredients ourselves and news flash...we aren’t making this for you! ??????? Go get a hobby or find something else to do with your time! That being said...I made this as the recipe states. I usually only make changes after I make it first. We thought it was very good. I wouldn’t change a thing. It makes a lot, enough for two dinners so I froze one tray. Hopefully the 2nd one comes out just as good.

Look, people. If you don't have something constructive to say, keep your thoughts to yourselves. Casseroles made with canned soups aren't going to be low-fat, low-sodium. We're well aware. But the addition of these soups often make the best "comfort" foods! So if you don't cook with canned "cream" soups, fine. But don't lecture those who do. We're adults and we can make our own choices, thank you very much. And, by the way, the author of this recipe mentioned nothing about it being healthy, so it's not like false claims were made. Sheesh.

These are very tasty but definitely needs a little more enchilada sauce in the pan. Next time I may do 1

This are really yummy! I did reduce the chili powder and the cumin to 2 1/2 teaspoons each and I used a jar of cheese dip sauce instead of the cheese soup. My husband even went for seconds.

Excellent enchiladas! My husband and I loved these. I served them with chopped lettuce and tomato and sour cream and guacamole and was a great meal. I did use the mild Rotel tomatoes as I don't like really spicy food and my husband put jalapenos on his so we were both happy.. Definitely make again!
