  1. In a large skillet, saute rice with butter or margarine. Add chicken broth and simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until rice is cooked and tender. Let cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Cube 3/4 pound of the cheese; shred the remaining 1/4 pound cheese and set aside. Combine chicken, 3/4 pound cubed cheese, corn, cooled rice and 1/4 cup sauce in a large bowl. Mix together. Warm tortillas in the microwave for 2 minutes and spread another 1/4 cup sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  4. Place a little of the chicken mixture on each tortilla and roll up. Place filled tortillas (as many as will fit) in the baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/4 pound shredded cheese and top with any remaining sauce, pouring evenly over all. (Freeze remaining tortillas for future green sauce enchiladas!)
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.

I'm a very experienced cook. I thought this recipe was very blah. It's almost a waste of calories because the 3/4 lb. of cubed cheese doesn't translate into a sumptious, cheesy enchilada. It coo...

This was the best enchiladas I have ever had. My fussy children loved it, too. I also made some changes to the recipe: I marinated the chicken in lime juice, chili powder, garlic, salt, pepper, ...

These were wonderful with lots of leftovers (and I mean LOTS). I boiled the chicken for several hours in water with green chili's. Then added onions and 1 can of Rotels. Also used a Cheddar/M...

was very good, but was missing something. Bought jalapeno pepper to add in like others suggested, but forgot to add it. My husband chopped it up for the leftovers, and said it was just what it ...

These are good. I like the addition of the rice and corn. I could use less chicken and cheese and make them a little healthier. I didn't have jack cheese so used cheddar. Next time I would s...

Yummy!!! I added more sauce and cheese. I also used Tyson's frozen pre-cooked fajita chicken that comes in a large bag. It was quicker and the fajita taste really added to it!

These enchiladas are fabulous. I used only 8oz of cheese and the recipe made about 14 delicious enchiladas.

Excellent starter recipe, I made a few modifications. Definitely use more sauce. thanks, Dawn!
