"Made this recipe and got rave reviews. I used 2 lbs. of hamburger and this made it really meaty."

"My sentiments exactly BeMoWe. In New Mexico we use corn tortillas instead of the flour tortillas and use a real red chile sauce. Much more flavorful. A green chile sauce can be substituted for the red, if you prefer."

"I followed this exactly. The flavor didn't remind me of enchiladas - more like several other ground beef casseroles I have had. But the part that really disappointed me was how incredibly soggy and pasty the tortillas in the middle layer were! If I make this again, I will only put the tortillas on the top, just below a layer of grated cheese."

"Love love love! I used cooked lasagna noodles instead of tortillas because we didn't like how mushy the tortillas got. And for sure 2 teaspoons of cumin. One of our favorite dishes! We make this a lot. I serve on top pico de gallo made of tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, lime juice, and salt."

"dinner tonight was fabulous, thanks! I didn't make any changes and turned out a favorite. Husband literally licked his plate. The flavor wasn't overpowering, but just spicy enough and enjoyed the cottage cheese mixture. Will be making again for sure."

"I thought this was just ok. It wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be. I would consider it to be more like a burrito than an enchilada."

"I used corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas. I also

made a small pan using zucchini instead of tortillas to separate the layers for my low carb guests Both were very yummy. Everyone liked it a lot. No leftovers here."
