  1. I accidentally bought the red sauce for these.
    When I made the filling I mixed the cooked chicken with the cream cheese and green chilies, but I also added sour cream, some of the shredded cheese, and a little of the red sauce. They were WONDERFUL!!

      1. Lisa,
        I buy corn tortillas in bulk at my local sam’s and vacuum seal then freeze them. I never have a problem defrosting and using them. the only problem I know is that you have to moisten corn tortillas with a little heat and oil or microwave wrapped in a paper towel to get them to roll without cracking.

  2. Lisa,Do you think this can be made stove-top or in the crock-pot? We are continuing to have triple digit temperatures and I am running out of ideas for meals.

    1. Anne –
      I have prepared the enchiladas and not put them in the baking dish, but just microwaved individually. I am sure if you had a small baking dish you could prepare in entree form and microwave to heat!
