Best Smelling and Tasting Enchiladas

We had a cook off at our office in which we had to chose a recipe off of The contest was judged and I won best smell as well as best tasting. Thanks a ton! It was YUM.

This meal was amazing! My husband loved it and declared it his favorite chicken dish. I will definitely share this one with friends and family.

These were terriffic. Even my non-Spanish food loving husband couldn't get enough. I used mild sweet salsa but next time will try a different flavor or brand for more tang.

too much cheese

You REALLY have to like cheese to enjoy this recipe. It did not go over well at my home. It is just a matter of preference. Cream cheese just does not cut it for us in an Enchilada. Too much cheese!
