    I wish the recipe told me in the steps how many enchiladas to make. The video ended up showing 10 or 12 on the next step while I made 7, but then I didnt measure the chicken mixture before rolling.

    Is it me or are these recipes getting lazier. Take a premise sauce and poor it over something.

    Pretty good... could use some peppers or something for more flavor.

    Absolutely amazing! Used chicken breasts and cooked it in the oven, pulled it myself, and used taco seasoning on the chicken to season it!

    I used green enchilada sauce (hatch brand is preferable but la Victoria/las palmas/old El Paso works fine. Don’t use flour tortillas or too much sauce, makes it soggy. I added a small can of green Chiles too. Also extra cheese doesn’t hurt. Or green onions (scallions) chopped on top. Bakes in a 375 pan in oven about 23-30 minutes. Depends on how cold everything is.
