    I thought the Chicken Enchiladas Nachos looks and sounds very yum. I'll definitely make it. I'd like to double it up, and I'm curious or perhaps making an suggestion. You always do great job mentioning the nutritional valves, including calories and fat PER serving, but I never see the amount of servings each recipe makes. For some, like the Artchoke Heart au gratin, is pretty self explanatory. I'm assuming since it makes 1w halves that it is 12 servings, but some recipes call for 2 as being one serving. With this particular recipe, I'd really like to know the number of servings, especially when I want to double it. For that reason only, I gave you 3 stars, otherwise I would have gave 4, and when I finally figure out how many servings and make, my guess is I'd be giving you a whopping 5.  -  10 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
