Very tastey. I used enchilada sauce instead of salsa. (that's all I had on hand). I poured some sauce over the top before baking and I put the cheese on about the last 5 minutes of baking.

This is EXTREMELY easy and very good. It was a little rich. After reading everyone's reviews this is what I did: 4oz of LF cream cheese, 3/4 jar of salsa, 1 small can green chilis. Also, I was running REALLY late so I used the pre-cooked perdue chicken short cuts and they worked perfectly. You can make this ahead, roll and refrigerate until later.

This recipe was the best. I have made enchiladas before that took much more work and didn't taste this good. I did use enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan and on top of the enchiladas as was previously suggested. Aside from that I would change nothing, they were great. Will definitely be making these more often. For a really quick meal I also used chunk chicken in a can.
