  1. A HUGE hit for dinner last night. Everyone loved them and said they were better than the restaurants’. I made double the recipe so there were extras to be frozen. I made them exactly as the recipe stated. I also made the rice and it too was a hit.. Thanks

  2. I made these but am not going to cook and serve for 6 hours. Should I put the sauce on now or wait until I put in oven? Concerned about the sauce making it soggy if I put it on ahead of time. Thanks

  3. 5 stars
    A family favorite! Delicious and easy! We also tried it out with pork leftovers and it turned out also!

  4. My son loved these will make again. Used salsa verde instead of rotel. Also shredded my own Monterey Jack cheese.

  5. 5 stars
    These enchiladas are great! To make them even quicker and easier, I use a rotisserie chicken. And these are great reheated for lunch the next day too!

  6. 5 stars
    This was absolutely delicious! I did substitute the Rotel for a can of green chilis and mixed pepper Jack and shredded provolone cheeses for the topping.

  7. My whole big family love these times. Even the two who hate sour cream love them!!!
