Well worth the effort as these are the best enchiladas I have made. I had enough to freeze for another day, which is a bonus.

Great way to eek out left over chicken. Made a batch of sauce, used half and froze the rest. Great way to introduce my 7 yr old son to more spicy and interesting food. Mixed creme fraiche and cheese for topping for me as suggested previously but not for my son as he is a bit wary of 'white stuff'!! However his was a bit dry and he said it was 'burnt' and would eat it again if softer - so will use bit of creme fraiche for him next time too.

Made these last night for dinner and they were delicious. Very quick and easy to make. Will be making these again soon.

This is really delicious and filling, too. I forgot to put the cheese inside so put it all on top, which I preferred. I froze some then allowed them to defrost before cooking as per the recipe and this worked well too but i wish i had greased the tin first. The second time I made them I spread a thin layer of creme fraiche on each roll before sprinkling with cheese. I know this will increase the calorie content but it was jolly good.

nice way to use up roast chicken. I don't eat sweetcorn so substituted this for some yellow pepper. Also I love re-fried beans so added one can of these instead of one the kidney beans. Probably made it a bit more stodgy but tasted great.
