My husband loved this enchilada recipe! I have tried a few others trying to find the very best one that my family likes and I think this won! Even my 15 month old son loved it! I will definitely be making this again! 🙂

Kids loved it! The extra work of browning the tortillas was worth it.

Excellent tasty dish. Use less enchilada sauce though

I used a powdered enchilada sauce that I got in Sant Fe. Other than that I followed this recipe and it was excellent.
Omg! By far the BEST enchiladas I’ve prepared...thanks for the delicious recipe!
The flavor of the chicken was AMAZING I use it now to season my chicken in other recipes. I really loved the flavor it gave when sautéing the onions. Cannot wait to make again!

Delicious easy to follow recipe and was perfect Friday family meal
Excellent!!! I loved all the spices creating a smoky heat and not having to use any salt. I went with the red enchilada sauce!

Great. Used a crockpot, though, which made it better.
Amazing! My husband loves Mexican food and he said this was the best.

This was delicious! First time making and tasting enchiladas. Very simple and a quick fix. Will make again, except next time I want to try using a mexican cheese blend.

Best chicken enchiladas I have ever made, and I have made a bunch over the years! It is a very fresh recipe. I added black beans to the recipe.

So good! Had to use red enchilada sauce because my grocery store doesn't carry green. Still was very tasty and plan on making this again soon!

Really liked this- usually make enchiladas with cream cheese, roasted gr chilies & chicken filling. These were delicious / don't skimp on the onions (can easily add more veggies- jalapeños, peppers, mushrooms, black beans).

Really good. This started a whole new enchiladas phase in my life. The carmelized onions really make it.

This is fantastic! It's my family's favorite enchilada recipe. My husband is a vegetarian, the chicken is easily replaced with beans. We do not own a microwave, so we heat the corn tortillas up in the oven to make them easier to roll.
