    fast and easy

    My family and I liked the dish, but I will most likely tweak it next time. I expect a bit of heat which I did not get, so next time I'll add a bit of hot sauce to the picante sauce for more of a kick. Also when i left the tortillas seam side up, they would open up, so i prefer seam side down.

    Quick meal

    I love this recipe. I added a can of pinto beans and brown rice to make the meal more filling. I sprinkle shredded cheese on top during the baking process. I am a busy mom so this website is so helpful.

    Very easy to prepare.

    My husband and I loved this recipe. I used more picante sauce and raw onion as I didn't have any green onion. Used 1tsp. chili powder. I put extra picante sauce and shredded cheese on top. It took less than the 40 minutes to bake. I would suggest just watching it. It made great leftovers for a quick lunch - one minute in the microwave, and was a great way to use leftover chicken.

    Picante Chicken Enchiladas

    I love this recipe! We never have any leftovers. I make extra sauce to put on the top and we put a little more chilli powder than that it requires.
