For a kid-friendly (milder) dish, omit the jalapenos. To save time, use leftover or store-bought cooked chicken. Try sour cream and cilantro as toppings.

    I made the enchiladas for a crowd of kids and adults. It was a hit! I did not use the jalapeños. I added some grated zucchini to the tomato sauce. I also made some other Martha kid friendly recipes and they were very successful.

    Delicious! Super easy and quick to make. Instead of Monterey Jack, I used a cup of Colby Jack and a cup of Taco cheese since that all I had on hand. It came out really good. Even my picky sons and husband devoured it! i am search more i found this recipes blog.

    Second time I have made this and I was quite pleased with the end result. I will definitely make them again... If I can get my hands on some pickled jalapeños i would love to taste the end result.

    I prepared these along with "Vegetarian Enchiladas" for a crowd of meat and non meat eaters. They were a hit! By putting out a few embelishments such as homemade salsa I had on hand, fresh guacamole and crema the spread looked impressive. For dessert we had homemade vanilla bean ice cream with crisped flour tortillas brushed with cinnamon and sugar. The whole meal took 55 minutes to prepare.

    I made these for Cinco De Mayo.My husband and I thought they tasted better than any mexican restaurant enchiladas. The sauce was very tasty and had a little kick to it!
