    what these recipes are, are foundations for a meal; they give you a basic instruction and you flavor and provide the characteristics for the dish! This site provides great starter ideals and I have left them for my husband to make several times and he now knows the basics and is learning the herbs and flavors as he progress's.

    Doesn't come close to what we make in New Mexico. Not authentic & sounds awful.

    Great simple quick & tasty weeknight recipe with just a few ingredients. Fills the bill nicely for us! Come on people - you can't figure out how to throw in a little salt, cumin, chili powder? Just taste it!

    I just made this and it was great! But I did change some things. I seasoned my chicken with salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder. I also think it would be better if you warm up the tortilla pieces without the chicken, and then add the rest. I also used a taco seasoning packet for extra flavor, added some extra water so it wasn't goopy. Turned out great for me!

    This was easy and very tasty. I threw a can of drained black beans into the mix. If you want more flavor then use the "hot" enchilada sauce and throw some jalapenos on top after it is served.

    How good can it be, there isn't even basic seasoning, i.e. salt and pepper.Where is the cumin, mex. oregano, and other mexican type flavorings? Doesn't look like its worth the time and effort, especially when having to figure out the best seasonings yourself. Might as well start from scratch and come up with your own recipe. No stars! couldn't post without picking one.
