    Very flavorful and filling. I used flour tortillas I had on hand and a whole 16 oz jar of green chile sauce which helped to make all the tortillas moist. Quick and easy to make. I could definitely see swapping out different ingredients to have several tasty variations. Good job! - 9/29/12

    Made this last night - sooo good!!! I used low carb/fat tortillas instead of corn (had them on hand), and it was still very good. My husband loved it as well (he's not too concerned with his weight, like I am). Definitely will make this again, and have already shared the recipe with friends. - 1/12/12

    My husband and I both enjoyed this for dinner. Could not find green chile sauce in mild so I used enchilada sauce and added green chiles. - 10/29/12

    I use enchilada sauce in this recipe a lot myself.
