    experimented with low carb and cactus corn tortillas - worked out great. took awhile for sauce to thicken and ended up adding more flour. also added a second can of chilies for flavor

    This turned out great! I added corn inside the chicken mix and some spices to the sauce :)

    pretty good enchiladas. We really liked it adding some black beans. Also put a little bit of the sauce inside the enchilada, gets so dry otherwise.

    I used a little extra cheese on top and it was very good. The only part I didn’t like was shredding the chicken, it took fooorever. Lol.

    Amazing - I added some lime juice to the sauce & that gave it a nice, extra burst of flavor.

    Love this recipe a staple in our house. We add more diced chiles and use pepperjack cheese cause we like it spicy.

    My sauce didn't quite thicken up like it probably should've, but this was a hit! I will definitely be making this again 🙂

    I make this a lot, but I noticed that if you eat leftovers or freeze half for later, the flour tortillas get gummy. So, next time I am going to try them with corn tortillas. Other than that, this recipe is fantastic!
