The best enchilada ever either in or out of restaurant. I couldn't find green taco sauce so I used green enchilada sauce. I also returned the dish to the oven for 15 minutes after topping the enchiladas with the sour cream sauce to warm it. The next time I make it I plan to decrease the sour cream by probably half. If it turns out any better, I will jump in it and swim.:))

I am fairly a new cook and made this for my boyfriend one night and he and I loved it! I would definitely add some chopped avocado and tomatoes on the top.

Always a hit, so easy to make and healthy for Mexican food. I use corn tortillas, plain yogurt in stead of sour cream, and more tomatoes and cilantro in the filling and on top.

Good, but but not great. I did alter the recipe's sauce; I didn't want the sour cream base sauce so I used green chile enchilada sauce (a family mbr. not a fan of sour cream). It was kinda of bland, maybe adding cumin to the chicken filling would help. Will make again with alterations.

hands down 5 stars. These were easy to make and SO good. I used a rotisserie chicken to save time on the cooked chicken step, but didn't change anything else. This could easily feed 4 adults with 2 enchiladas per person and maybe a side of beans and/or rice. Yum!! I'll be making this again for guests :)

I made this exactly as the recipe was except for using low carb tortillas and it was delicious!
