Sometimes I have cooking days when I can do everything from scratch, but mostly I have to take shortcuts and am happy if I can get any kind of home-cooked meal on the table. These chicken enchiladas were a great compromise, and because of the shortcuts, I was able to make my own guacamole to go with everything else.

@Mexico Resident: There are many variations of chicken enchilada recipes out there for a wide variety of tastes. I think using fresh green chilies in this recipe would be a great idea! - RecipeLion Editors

@ L Graham --- I live in Mexico and I can't imagine any respectable Mexican making enchiladas using canned soup! Yuk! That's as "non" authentic as one can get! Not to mention, canned green chiles! Use fresh! Plus they are healthier for you!

I cannot IMAGINE using pimentos OR cream sauce for enchiladas! I grew up in the Southwest, and that just sounds disgusting! To make a good chicken enchilada sauce, in a blender mix a can/box of cream of mushroom soup with a can of diced green chilis and puree. Then use that both to dip the tortillas before filling and to pour over them before baking. Mince the onions and include them in the filling, along with some of that grated cheese, and toss a few more in the shredded lettuce. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top and maybe a little guacamole on the side with refried beans and Mexican fried rice.
