    Even better than I expected. I cooked 3 frozen Costco chicken breasts in my crockpot on low for several hours; shredded chicken and added 4 oz. diced green chiles, w/onion & garlic and cooked on low again for a couple more hours and then filled tortiallas. Used mild green enchilada sauce. Great! - 12/21/07

    Very good. My daughter and husband loved them and DH didn't know it was "healthy" food! They were a little plain for me, so next time I think I'll add some diced tomatoes to the filling. - 4/9/07

    YUM!! I used 3 chicken breasts and about 1.5 cups cheese - Cabot's 50% reduced cheddar. Also had some scallions on hand so sprinkled some green onion on top for color. Might add more onion next time. Tastes great, looks great, will def. make again. (pan might need greasing? little sticking for me) - 5/31/09

    This sounds great. I would suggest the fat free shredded cheedar to lower calories and fat. Also can get low carb wheat tortillas too. Every little bit helps, atleast in the guilt department - 10/9/09

    Excellent recipe; tasty. The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is because it can be made healthier with better ingredients. I used fat-free cheddar, and La Tortilla Factory tortillas (50 cals ea.); with those substitutions: calories = 198.9, total fat = 4.8g, and total carbs = 21.2. - 12/30/09

    I just happen to make enchiladas last night. I don't use the cream soup which cuts out some calories right away. I also add some black beans to the chicken which makes it healthier. I also sprinkle some chopped scallions on top for color and flavor but that's me. We love them! - 1/18/10

  • Looks good. I think I can play around with the amount of chicken to make this higher protein and less carbs. Thinking three chicken breasts and then only 4 tortillas to make 4 servings. That should get the nutritnal values better for a dinner. Will rate once I try it. - 10/3/12

  • I made a vegetarian version of this recipe, substituting zucchini and red pepper for the chicken, and cream of mushroom soup for the cream of chicken. It was really yummy. I did have to add more cheese, I guess I filled the tortillas with too much so I didn't have any left over for the top! - 3/19/12

  • I used green enchilada sauce and a little less of the soup, but it was still very delicious. I also added in a few veggies I like, such as tomatoes and green onion (as a garnish, really) but I'd make it again. Next time I might use beans in the filling. - 5/28/11
