Cook's Notes

Chipotles in adobo (smoked, dried jalapenos in sauce) are spicy -- for less heat, scrape out ribs and seeds. You'll find them in the international aisle. Pan-steaming is a smart way to cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Gentle heat and moisture keep the meat juicy and tender without any added fat.

    This was pretty good, but the sauce was somewhat bland. It tasted more like a gravy than enchilada sauce.

    This was pretty easy and it's delicious. I used soy flour, so the sauce didn't thicken and I had to add corn starch but that was my bad. I will definitely make this again and I appreciate how the ingredients made 8 perfect enchiladas.

    This is divine. I made it last night for my boyfriend (who I am having trouble cooking for as he is picky) and he loved it. I loved it. We loved it so much i have another one in the oven right now. And its pretty easy!

    *** I made a double batch and used a 7.5 oz can of the chipotle canned salsa. Again, so yummy!***

    This recipes was sooooo good!!! I used chipotle salsa instead of chiles (a whole small can) and I forgot the salt and pepper. I aldo used reduced fat mexican mix cheese. I ran out of chicken and made a cheese one....mi esposo favorito! I also used 32 ounces of reduced sodium chicken broth and no water. I will do this recipe again and again.

    I'm putting this on my "To Try" list. In the's an amazingly easy & quick way to shred the chicken. This works if you have a Kitchen Aid mixer with a flat paddle beater. While the chicken is still warm (important) put in the mixing bowl, turn the mixer on LOW, and let the flat paddle beater do its work. In a minute or two, you'll have shredded chicken!!! Soooo much easier than pulling it apart with two forks.

    I made this recipe with my mom this evening and we absolutely loved it! We followed the recipe but did not have chipotle peppers so used a couple of jalapeno peppers instead. It was the perfect amount of cheese, spice and chicken!

    I followed this as is and it was excellent. I loved the heat from the chipotles but if you don't like spice cut it down considerably.
