Great enchilada casserole. Original recipe called for shredded cheese, so much better than the processed cheese slices. Its been a family favorite for years!

Can this be made and layered in a crock pot? Anyone ever try it?

I didn't have the red peppers, so I added about 3/4 c. of salsa. I also added about 1/2 c. of sliced ripe olives right into the recipe. It was great! Destined to become a regular dish here.

I've tried to make chicken enchiladas before which required a lot of prep work and tasted okay. However this is an easy and yummy recipe. My husband actually told me to keep this one!

I added Black Beans to this and only used a little of the chilies, but it was pretty good. I would make this again, but will probably tweak it some more.

This recipe is really good. I would suggest chopping everything before beginning to make the dish. It requires you to move quickly. But it is very worth it to make!
