    This recipe sounds good....
    But tell me, where do you find stokes green chili sauce with pork? If I cannot find it here, what do you suggest as a replacement? - 8/10/09

    You can really use any canned green chili sauce you find in the mexican section at your grocery store. I often use different kinds - they had the Stokes listed in the nutritional area, so I chose that kind. Maybe I should have listed it in more generic terms, but feel free to use whatever you find!

    Incredible! My whole family LOVED it and it's hard to get them to eat healthy. I did as another person suggested and substituted the green sauce with salsa as well and it turned out YUMMY! Thanks for this recipe. - 4/26/10

    These are really good, I thought they might be a little weird because of the cream cheese and green sauce/sour cream mix but they are really good! I'm happy that I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow :) - 1/21/10

  • This is really very good. I added some fresh spinach while coking the chicken.
    I also added a can od FF chicken soup.

  • Really really good!!! I swapped out some "low carb whole wheat" tortillas at ~85 cal/12 in tortilla. Also swapped out Fat free Greek yogurt for the sour cream, and it came out delicious! that could save you ~75 cals/enchilada if you follow everything else! - 4/13/10

  • These were awesome ! Loved them. And I am on Weight Watchers and made 6 large ones (vs 8 per recipe), and they were 7 pts each ! I didn't use the green chili sauce, I subsituted it with salsa (mixed that with the sour cream), for the sauce topping. Even my kids liked them! - 2/11/10

  • Had these for dinner tonight - followed recipe as is & my husband absolutely loved them! He normally doesn't go for low-fat anything, but wasn't aware that this was a slimmed-down version. Thank you, this was excellent! - 1/13/10

  • I have made a similar recipe from Campbell's soup, but my husband liked this one better. It's a keeper. I halved the sour cream and chile sauce so less calories and sodium and it turned out just a touch dry so will add more chile sauce next time. And there will definitely be a next time. - 1/7/10
