    Amazing, simple, delicious and flavourful. I personalised mine by including Mozzarella in both the sauce and the filling which made them a little juicier and more stringy which is something I prefer. In addition I used Quorn instead of chicken since I had no meat in the house. Cooked following the directions in this recipe, it makes it ideal for vegetarians too! Thank you for sharing this recipe!  -  19 Sep 2011


    I love enchiladas and was excited to find this recipe here. These came out well, but needed some more spunk. I added green and red bell peppers to the filling mixture, and topped the enchiladas with some green onions for flavor and presentation. The topping was a bit cheesier than I would like, so I will use less cheese and more sour cream next time. Thanks for a good recipe!  -  02 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm an enchilada fan, I love enchiladas and am always looking for and trying new recipes. This was a great recipe!!! Don't let the simplicity turn you away, these are great. If they're too mild for your taste, you can easily jazz them up by adding spices to the chicken or adding a spicy enchilada sauce. I did add a can of mild enchilada sauce before adding the cheese to the top as someone suggested, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing.  -  07 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
