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!

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.

I just made this casserole and my kids loved it! It was very easy to prepare. It is not a substitution for real enchiladas, but it is a great casserole for those picky eaters! I used grilled chicken breast, which added a nice flavor to the filling. As for the topping, I had no trouble preparing the cheese sauce as some other reviewers mentioned. It melted to a smooth consistency, but perhaps they added all the cheese at once instead of by small handfuls. I also added just a small amount of green chile enchilada sauce over the enchiladas prior to topping with the cheese sauce. I would definitely make this again!
