    It really wasn't the best in our opinion. It tasted okay, but wasnt the quality we were hoping for.

    It was awesome, I grilled 4 chicken breasts, seasoned with my adobo seasoning& pepper, I added diced green chilies inside, and i garnished with diced green onions. It fed my 5 children, my husband and myself with 2 each. I shredded the chicken, added the cheese and 1/2 of a can of the enchilada sauce the medium one ( it's actually not SPICY just a tiny bite but mostly flavor) mixed in a large bowl added the green chilies & just followed the steps. There are NO left overs!! Thanks so much for the step by step directions, it was super easy. I didn't have rotisserie chicken so i just decided to grill the chicken breasts i had. i hope more people try this recipe, this was my and my family's first time trying enchiladas and I'm glad we did!

    I used a 28 oz can of LaVictoria Enchilada sauce. Warmed up 1 can great northern bean, 1/2 can black beans, 1 cup corn, rotiss chix (you decide how much) and 1/3 can of the enchilada sauce with a little added cumin on the stove top. Poured some of the enchilada sauce in the 9x 13 pan and rolled the warm ingredients inside a flour tortilla with some monterey jack cheese. Poured remainder of the enchilada sauce and monterey jack cheese on top and baked as directed. Soooo good!

    Easy recipe wasn’t overly keen on the flavour, but is depends on what sauce you’re using I guess😊
