I followed this recipe exactly except like other reviewers I added chicken and used flour tortillas instead. I will admit that I did over cook the chicken a bit leaving it kind of dry but there were so many other negatives with this dish that it just ended up being one bad meal night! There really isn''t much flavor to this dish and there isn''t enough enchilada sauce however all of the juice that comes from the pineapple leaves the tortillas very mushy. I''m sorry, but I like my own enchilada recipe better. Not a winner in my book.

We LOVE the concept of this recipe, but we make it slightly different! We use regular flour torillas, add grilled chicken to the mix, grill our own green chiles, omit the peppers and cilantro, and use red onion. We also add some "Emeril''s Essence" to it to give some good flavor. :o) Lots of differences, but they are small. These are wonderful enchiladas- -we have them about once a week!!

I have a teenager who has been a vegetarian for two years. It is challenging to find a good recipe that the entire family can eat and this one fits the bill. My husband and my 18 year old son love it and so does the 14 year old vegetarian. It is easy to make and has a nice combination of flavors. I like the idea of the whole wheat tortillas, but we used flour per family request.Thanks for a great recipe that I will use again.

My husband described this dish as "mush." There just isn''t enough texture contrast, although it looks nice in the dish. It definitely does not improve with age.

This recipe has become a new favorite for my family. The only thing I do different is add some chicken. My boyfriend has to have meat in his meals. I just chop up one chicken breast and saute it with the onion and pepper. Other than that, we love this recipe!

I thought this recipe was absolutely fabulous. I am the mother of five and sometimes it''s difficult to find recipes that appeal to all 5 children as well as my husband. This one was loved by our entire family. I thought the addition of the pineapple was pure genius!! I opted to add boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into thin strips to the dish. The pineapple not only adds wonderful dimension to the dish but helps to keep the chicken moist and juicy. My children have requested this again recently and I''m thrilled to be able to serve them something so unique and HEALTHY!! Thanks so much, Mary, for sharing this award winning recipe with us!

Made for my skeptical parents and turned out great. They both raved. Make sure you drain the pineapples and squish out some of the juice from the tidbits to prevent them from being too moist. I also used regular flour tortillas because I am not crazy about the texture of the whole wheat ones.

MY HUSBAND AND I REALLY LIKED THIS RECIPE. I DID CHANGE IT A LITTLE. I ADDED 3 CUPS OF COOKED CHICKEN (IN PIECES) AND I ALSO ADDED 2 CUPS OF JACK CHEESE (ALONG WITH THE OTHER CHEESE.)

The recipe was great. I started with a diced chicken breast and served it with rice cooked with a mild salsa. The perfect sweet and spicy combination.

After reading all the great reviews, I was very excited to make this dish. Boy was I disappointed. The pineapple was much too sweet and did not go very well with the enchilada mix. They were even worse the second day. I had to throw half the pan away. Definately will not make again.
