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

"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"

"These are great! And easy. I made them many times, then lost my recipe. My husband has been asking for them, and then I found it again. Thank you so much for this recipe! My husband is so happy."
