With a toddler in the house, I look for foods that are a snap to make. Loaded with beef, cheese and a flavorful rice mix, these enchiladas come together with out any fuss. But they're so good that guests think I spent hours in the kitchen. -Jennifer Smith Colona, Illinois

"These are quick, easy and very flavorful. Usually I make a recipe "as is" before I spice things up a bit, but not with this one, it's so easy to tweak. I doubled everything except the sauce & cheese & used 10" tortillas. I added 2 envelopes of taco seasoning to the meat- 1 regular & 1 spicy. I used 2 cans of enchilada sauce mixed together- 1 spicy red & 1 mild green. I used 2 packages of rice mix- 1 Spanish & 1 Mexican & added a cup of enchilada sauce to the rice with a bit of water when making. Took longer to heat thru because of my changes, but was hot & bubbly in about 25 minutes. I would definately make these again, the 10" tortillas made a nice big serving & fit in my glass pan perfectly. Leftovers are excellent too, just enough zip for heat lovers."

"Pretty good and certainly didn't hear any complaints. These are certainly easy to make. I used the Mexican Rice/Roni and didn't add another thing. We topped them with salsa, sour cream, green onions and olives. Left overs tonight. I did spray the pan with cooking spray and was glad I did. They did take a little longer to get hot but sat a bit before going into the oven as my guys weren't home from work yet. We also really like the Creamy chicken Enchilidas made with the Cream of chicken soup. Yumm"

"I really enjoyed these and so did my 7 year old. My husband doesn't like rice, but said the filling had great flavor. I can't wait to eat the leftovers. Made exactly as written except for using whole wheat tortillas."
