"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."
