Dec 22nd: This recipe was a HIT! The changes I made were perfect. I made 33 enchiladas! I did not need to buy 2 bags of the (Costco) shredded Mexican 4 cheeze mix. I now have a whole bag left. I would do this recipe again in a heartbeat. Dec. 16th: I am making this recipe for a dinner party of 23 people. I made one up tonight to test the recipe and I liked it alot. My changes are: I omitted the cumin because I don't like cumin (go figure). What I decided after my taste test is I am going to split the recipe up and make one 1/2 with the salsa and make the other half with green chile verde sauce that comes in the cans. This is because the salsa is medium on the heat scale and I want to offer a choice. I don't agree with the other reviewer that the enchinadas were dry - they were moist as can be. Also, I bought (Costco) the shredded Mexican 4 cheeze mix to save time. Oh - and Costco will sell already cooked chicken breast meat - it took a while to shred but it was worth it. I think this is a great recipe!


Pretty good. My VERY picky husband liked it! Next time I will make more of the filling to go into the tortillas.

These are the BEST! I make it with chile verde sauce and add extra sour cream and cheese on top when served. Yummm!
