I'm not rating this because I won't use it. I'm sure that people who have no objection to the use of canned soups will like it. But for heaven's sake ToH, can't you come up with recipes without canned soup in them? Unhealthy, nasty tasting, please, please think about this.

Gack!! Alabama Enchiladas. I'm from San Diego an NO ONE there would make anything like this. Why not add a block of Velveeda, as well.

Easy to make and delicious! Instead of using rotisserie chicken, I stewed chicken breasts in the crockpot and then shredded them. I also halved the recipe and it generously filled a 13x9 baking dish for us. Used corn tortillas because that's what we prefer and also put some shredded cheese into each enchilada. Really good! Will definitely make again!Volunteer Field Editor

This was simple and tasty! I realized as I tasted it that I use the same combo of Rotel, cream of chicken soup and taco seasoning with chicken breasts in a crockpot to make shredded chicken for tacos and nachos. So this tasted familiar but was much quicker (and less liquidy) than my crockpot method when combined with leftover rotisserie chicken meat. I tried a half size portion recipe making three changes. Instead of flour tortillas, I used corn tortillas to avoid gumminess. I also did not have cheese soup so used a 4 ounce single serve nacho cheese dip cup. In place of the variety of spices, I used taco seasoning. The result was a nice pan of quick chicken enchiladas. They didn't taste "authentic" but were good.

I make this recipe all the time. It's easy to make and and everyone I share it with, loves it. My neighbor says it's "the best chicken enchiladas he's ever ate".

Whether rotisserie or boiled chicken, shred the chicken! However, I thought enchiladas were corn and burritos were wheat. I would suggest a mix of 50/50 sour cream and heavy cream seasoned with chopped chives and parsley with salt and pepper, maybe some cilantro, and perhaps less cream cheese. Cream cheese makes things soggy and takes too long to soften! And it is too bland! Find a way to add pepper flakes! This recipe is wonderful but needs more power! Joe

This was very good. Even my picky daughter enjoyed them. I did not use rotisserie chicken. I baked off some boneless skinless chicken thighs that I seasoned with pepper and a light amount of Season All. Best part is, I have three more meals in the freezer!

I just can't make any kind of enchiladas that call for canned cream soup. Ugh.
