After reading the comments we added more chicken and used half the butter, but we added green peppers. We did not dip the tortilla in the sauce, but we did pour the rest on top. We loved this!

Made this for dinner tonight. They were good but I would cut down on the was a bit too much. Also, definitely doesn't need as much butter. And like gburgos and sweetlove said, 6 oz of chicken is not enough for 10 tortillas, I would probably double the amount of chicken. I'm also not sure that the calories are correct. The recipe doesn't specify the size of tortilla so maybe that makes a difference. I used 10 inch tortillas. I also used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and low calorie butter substitute. The directions say to dip the tortillas in enchilada sauce but enchilada sauce is not in the list of ingredients so that adds calories too. With my lower calorie substitutions (yogurt and low cal butter) using 10 inch flour tortillas and double the amount of chicken, mine came out to 353 calories each (making 12 enchiladas instead of 10). I put 1/2 cup of the mixture in each tortilla.

Made it for dinner tonight and EVERYONE just couldn't stop talking about how good it came out! I used more chicken breast because 6 oz for 10 tortillas was definitely not enough and used whole wheat tortillas instead...this was GREAT :)!!!
