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"

"I made these last night and they were absolutely delicious. I did use the Mexican Rice a Roni instead of the Spanish Rice one because we prefer it, and could not have been happier. Served it up with sour cream, black olive slices and fresh chopped tomato. I also mixed a can of mild with a can of hot enchilada sauce for a bit of heat. I will definitely be making these again."

"We love this recipe, but I do add a can of black beans to the meat/rice mixture for a better consistency and it makes it more filling. I can make 2 9x13 pans out of this recipe that way too. (adding more enchilada sauce of course)"

"I have made this over and over...My family and friends always ask for the recipe after they taste it...For the Spanish Ric and Pasta Mix--I use the Spanish Rice a Roni and it calls to use chopped tomatoes...I use the tomatoes with jalapeños, and for the enchilada sauce I use medium...It gives it just the right kick...Mmmm!! I'm getting hungry for it again...See ya later...I have enchiladas to do... :)"

"I thought I had some spanish rice but it was chicken. Instead of going to the store I just used it. It was the kind that is already fixed you just warm it up. It was really very good. I will try this again with the right kind of rice just to see what it should taste like but over all I loved it."

"Wow! What a wonderful recipe! I always make sure that I have Spanish rice mix in the pantry now. Kids all enjoy it too. I usually make all the enchiladas in two separate dishes, that way I can freeze one and enjoy at a later date. Works well. Thanks for the recipe."
