Easy Chicken Enchiladas

It mentions to add picante sauce 3 x during the directions but in the ingredients it only mentions 1 cup picante sauce.
Stir the soup, sour cream, picante sauce
Stir 1 cup picante sauce mixture, chicken and cheese
Pour the remaining picante sauce

What is the total amount of picante sauce needed?


Good Evening

Good recipe. But can I use any other sauce than picante-style sauce!


Alternatives to salsa picante

If what you're trying to avoid is any semblance of chile and its heat, you could use a can of stewed tomatoes, a super mild salsa, or a guacamole without chile that's made with tomatoes and onions. Or, if you don't mind the thought of chopping up a couple of tomatoes, make your own salsa without any chiles in it. However, if you are looking for simple, easy, and no bother, I'd go with the stewed tomatoes. Once stirred in with the chicken and cooked, there's not much difference, other than the heat.
