    Very Good
    I made this tonight and my husband loved it, next time I I'll use no cream cheese because I couldn't taste it and will try it with some of the cheeses on the top, also will mix some of the chicken broth into the enchilada sauce and the meat because I've done that in the past and it's good. Yummy! - 9/23/10

    I skipped the cream cheese (didn't have any) and used crumbled mexican cheese. No green enchilada sauce either. I added a dollup of reduced fat sour cream & guacamole on top along w/ tomatoes lettuce and more cheese. Delicious, but I'd like to try this exact version too. Thanks for sharing! - 7/29/08
