Turkey or Chicken Enchiladas

Don't the tortillas taste 'dry' because they haven't been pre-softened and the filling isn't moistened? If you can tell me that the cream of chicken soup and broth actually penetrate through to the interior of the tortilla, moistening it, then I am absolutely going to make this recipe!

P.S. Can I use non-fat sour cream? (05/29/2007)

Chicken Enchiladas

This sounds really good. I am going to attempt to make them, just 1 question, do you heat the tortillas in the oven or in skillet before assembling? Does it matter? (12/30/2005)

Chicken Enchiladas

I have a recipe for chicken enchiladas that is very good, but it has more ingredients and makes a lot, and no way to cut in half with out messing up the recipe. This is similar so now I can make chicken enchiladas more often without so much leftovers. To jmz2005 question. In my recipe the tortilla's are not heated before assembling. They are rolled with chicken and chilies inside, and sauce over the top. (07/18/2008)
