    Incredible!!!! I substituted enchilada sauce for the tomato sauce to give it a little more flavor and add chicken into sauce before putting it in tortillas. I've made it three times now for large groups of people (doubled or tripled the recipe) and they are still giving me rave reviews about it. - 4/1/12

    We loved this! I added more fresh cilantro on top and they were delicious. Corn tortillas worked great, too! - 5/5/13

    Left out the flour and used corn tortillas because my husband is gluten free. Used a can of fire-roasted green chilies in place of the flour to make the roux for the sauce and it worked fine. - 6/14/12
