LOVED this recipe! I cut the ingredients in half since I was only cooking for myself, and it still made so much food! I'll definitely be having leftovers for a couple days, but I'm okay with that because it is delicious!

Made tonight with leftover rotisserie chicken. Did not use tomato sauce, it was saucy enough. Added corn. Simmered on stove for a bit. Then topped with cheese, green onion and chopped black olive. Put in oven for 10 min. Yum.

My boyfriend and I have made this twice now, and it's becoming my go-to for dinner when we can't figure out what we want. We mix it up by adding our own add-inns like corn, onions, green onions, sour cream, and slice up some avocado to go with it. Even bell peppers would be a great addition to it! It's very versatile.

Excellent short cut for enchiladas! I think the key to this recipe is to let the ro-tel tomatoes cook until the liquid evaporates completely before adding the enchilada sauce. That way the canned flavor was cooked out. I did not cover the skillet at all so that the sauce thickened as it cooked. I then topped it with cheese and slid into the oven for 10 minutes. Delicious!

I'm not sure if I didn't do something right, but my husband and I did not enjoy this dish. The taste wasn't terrible, but it was very runny and overall not that enjoyable.

We really like this but I do it differently. I make this with either a rotisserie chicken or raw (cut up and cooked with spices). Add all the ingredients except for the tortilla's. I also add corn and black beans. Use half the cheese in the mixture, then I actually serve it on/in either toasted flour or corn tortilla's, add a bit of cheese on top and some sour cream. Everyone loves it and it isn't mushy at all this way. And everyone can choose if they want a corn one or a flour one.
