I used what I had in my pantry and came up with this delicious recipe.

"Very delicious! I did not add any salt to this as the receipt called for it since other people said it was too much, but I did add in onions while I was cooking the chicken. I also add sour cream on top once it was removed from the oven, very good idea from a previous review I read. I was a little confused on what type of cheese to use but I use mild cheedar cheese and it turned out good, might use Mexican cheese next time. I think it would have been good if I would have thought about making a rice side with this though, but maybe next time. I will definitely make this dish again. "

I've made this multiple times and everyone (even the kids) love it!!

Super good! Since most of the reviews said it was too soupy, I used 3/4 cup of milk instead of the chicken water. Made it with black bean and corn salsa, added onion and peppers.

Love love love! Flavorful and great to reheat. This a big request. I've probably made it about 10 times and have not changed a thing.

Delicious and easy! I'm not typically a leftover fan but these were just as good the second time around! I'll be making these frequently since I'm already craving them and I just made this 5 days ago.

Try Using corn tortillas, place them in enchilada sauce to soften easier to roll.
