"I didn't particularly like these enchiladas. The mushroom soup made the red sauce sort of creamy. I prefer either creamy chicken enchiladas or beef enchiladas with straight red sauce, not a hybrid. Just my opinion. They were easy but I threw out more than half the leftovers."

"I fund thid id hard to believe that it has 0 sodium content with the 2 cans od soup in the ingredience. I am on a sodium free diet and I know that the soups happen to be high in sodium. How come the nutritional values are so off?"
