    I used the homemade sauce recipe. It’s a little more prep but can be done well ahead of time. Everything goes together very easily and tastes good.

    Needed a little more flavor. I also put to much chicken in tortillas so needed more 1/2 way into recipe. Easy recipe to follow.

    This is a favorite in our kitchen now! My fiancé loves this! Definitely make the homemade sauce if you’re questioning making it or just buying a store enchilada sauce. It’s the best enchilada sauce I’ve ever had.

    Homemade sauce is a plus. Only need a bit more cheese - will make again :) Thank you for sharing

    Amazing! Quick and easy, mostly because I cheated with ready made rotisserie chicken and store bought enchilada sauce. Needed a quick fix up today. Bonus: my cheese hating kid and my tomato sauce hating kid loved it!

    A very easy recipe. My family of 3 gobbled all 12 enchiladas up in one sitting. I used a rotisserie chicken from Walmart & added a few spices like chili powder, cumin, chipotle chili powder & garlic powder. I cheated & used Old El Paso canned enchilada sauce to save time. I used the combo Colby/ Monterey Jack shredded cheese. Garnished with bits of tomato, red onion & cilantro like the picture showed. Will definitely make again!

    Very good! Used rotisserie chicken and white corn tortillias. The use of the galon ziplock to keep them warm was brilliant

    The enchilada sauce was key to making this recipe. The sauce was wonderful. I’ve made it twice now. The first time I made it I substituted ground chicken for the shredded chicken the recipe called for. The enchiladas were delicious. The second time I made the dish I used shredded chicken that I had shredded after cooking in a crockpot. This time my wife said the enchiladas were better than anything we could get at a Mexican restaurant. We ended up freezing half of the batch. I plan to thaw the enchiladas and serve them this coming week. I’ll come back and finish the review after eating the thawed enchiladas. I plan to use the enchilada sauce in other ways since we both enjoyed it so much. It was easy to make and I know what the ingredients are that we’re eating.

    Very good.... sauce is delicious. I used a corn/wheat blend tortilla and it made them easy to roll after heating them . I needed to cook them longer. I was affraid they would dry out.

    My family liked this recipe. The flavor in the enchilada sauce was good. It made enough sauce for me to make an extra batch to freeze. I added sautéed peppers and onions and tomatoes to my enchiladas.

    Very good. Seasoned the chicken with cumin. Make sure to use all of the optional toppings: sour cream, onions, tomatoes, cilantro. I used Las Palamas enchilada sauce (medium heat).

    I will make again, using not as much chili powder very overpowering.
