"Very easy to prepare. I added 1 Tbsp Cumin, 2 extra tsps of salt, and 2 tsps of crushed red pepper (ground up) to the mixture before wrapping the enchilada (It gave it GREAT flavor w/o adding too much heat). I also used 12 inch flour tortillas (that's all I had) - I only used 3 of them (filled really full) and put the little bit of remaining filling in the ends of the pan, making it nice and full. It baked up beautifully, and tasted fabulous! My husband LOVED it, making the comment "we can definitely have this again"....I love to hear that! Thanks! I WILL make this again."- dana1105

1. Combine first 4 ingredients and 1 1/2 cups cheese in a large bowl. Spoon chicken mixture evenly down the center of each tortilla, and roll up. Arrange, seam side down, in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
2. Pour enchilada sauce evenly over tortillas, and sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
3. Bake, covered, at 350 for 20 minutes. Remove foil, and bake 15 more minutes or until bubbly. Garnish, if desired.
Grove tips: The six reviewers on Southern Living's website mentioned that this was too hot. We like spicy food, used mild rotel & mild enchilada, but still found this to be rather spicy (but still good!).
It worked better for us an a leftover because....we used the large tortillas so I cut a leftover one into halves and placed each into single serving broiler "boats". I sauteed 1 tb of minced garlic and 1 teaspoon of sliced green onion (the white end only) in 1 tb of butter for 1 minute. I then added 1/2 cup of heavy cream and simmered for about 5 minutes over low heat until thickened. I sprinkled some shredded cheddar over each "boat" . Pour cream mixture over each enchilada half and put into the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes, until mixture is bubbling. Top with more shredded cheese and sliced green onion (the green end). It was delicious the second time around!

Trtlmay 11 month agoI have made this twice now and really enjoyed it. We used 6 in. flour tortillas and it made 14 enchiladas in a 9x13 (9) and 8x8 (5). We used two cans of green enchilada sauce and estimated on the additional shredded mexican blend on top until it seemed appropriate. The first time I froze the additional enchiladas and they reheated fine. Great for leftovers or for additional friends & family. We are 2 + 1 toddler. Served with mexican rice and fresh cilantro. Enjoy! We will definitely make again.
shredward 11 month agoA decent, very American enchilada recipe. Not much depth of flavor, but that didn't stop me from devouring a plate full.
Jancey46 12 months agoPretty good, but seemed to be a bit dry. Next time I'll use another can of enchilada sauce. I also used corn tortillas--they were really good. I used the leftover filling on a pizza the next day.

vargasgirl6 1 year agoWe made this tonight and it fabulous! We will definitely be making this again. We had it with flour tortillas and it was perfect. We reduced the chili flakes to one tsp and it was spicy but not the burn-a-hole-in-your-mouth, kind. It was delicious. Thumbs up all around!
Betheebee 1 year agoI really liked this recipe as far as the ingredients in the enchiladas. I didn't like it with wheat tortillas at all! I would rather use flour or corn. Overall very easy to make. Next time I would just switch out the tortillas
tntlanes 1 year agoMy husband and I really liked this recipe a lot!! The kids (5&7) were not as enthusiastic, but did eat it. They are rather picky. There was quite a bit of filling so with what I had leftover I used to make quesadillas a couple of days later.
Bings 2 years agoWe loved these at our house! We have tried the same recipe with ground beef and it's equally good. One thing I did differently was to make my own enchilada sauce. I highly recommend trying it. It's very easy.
Kpbongos 2 years agoPretty good. If you don't like spicey, watch the rotel you use...there's a milder version. Also, we used herbed chicken which added more flavor to the chicken...yummy! Definite hit at our house!
missjan 2 years agoAwesome!! Garnished w/sour cream, chopped green onions & cilantro.
