    I've made this recipe about 10x since finding it. I made a few changes but awesome enchiladas! I use reduced fat cheese, light sour cream for more flavor, omit cilantro (i love cilantro but dont like it in this recipe), and use low-carb or fat flour tortillas. Turns out excellent everytime. - 3/2/09

    I made this but layered it like a lasagna which saved some time. I cooked the chicken breasts with salsa in the crockpot beforehand and shredded it. I didn't need the Rotel. I used low carb tortillas too. My entire family loved this dish. - 6/29/08

    This was very very good!!! We had leftovers for the week and they are even better the day after :) I used what I had at home so I used less cheese and less sour cream and whole wheat tortillas. Instead of 16 I used 8 large ones. It turned out great, but they did stick to the pan, I forgot to use Pam - 7/8/08

    I made this recipe using low carb/high fiber flour tortillas and I swap the chicken soup for a can of green chile enchilada sauce. I use a little of the green sauce to dip the warm tortillas in before rolling them up which is the more traditional method for making them. - 1/16/10

    I used this as a frame to what I had. I used a lot less sour cream and cheese, used a green tomatillo salsa in the chicken soup and sour cream and used only 10 tortillas. I was able to put it altogether into one pan and made a top of the stove version. This is a keeper. - 1/4/10

    Very good! I cut everything in 1/2 because it is just me and my husband. The only things I forgot to cut in 1/2 were the chili's and rotel (which is a brand name of tomatos with chopped chili's). But it turned out good anyways. Used one chicken breast from Rotisserie Chicken. Super Delicious! - 11/12/09

    My husband and I loved this dish! We substituted the corn torts for flour torts b/c he likes the flavor better. One thing I might change next time is less cilantro in the sauce. I may have did it wrong..I used a tbs processed/chopped cilantro. Will def use less next time. - 7/22/09

    My boyfriend loved this, but I think next time I'll try it with flour tortillas instead of corn, because they were all over the place. The recipe was very filling, and had a great flavor.

    EVERY ONE LOVED THIS! It was SUPER EASY to make! Even our pickiest kid said "Mom, you definitely have to make THIS one again"!! Instead of FF Sour Cream, I used FF Plain Greek Yogurt (Fage brand)! DEEEELICIOUS! - 9/16/13
