My best friend and I created this recipe together because we wanted a meal that’s easy to prepare, affordable and nutritious. We both have hectic schedules, so when we’re feeling crunched for time, it’s a relief to have these wholesome enchiladas waiting for us in the freezer. —Holly Baber, Seattle, Washington

"I think I might use less cream cheese next time but I really enjoyed this recipe. Easy and quick to make."

"This was delicious. I did cheat and use ground beef. My husband said it needed hot sauce. I thought it was great."

"We've had these twice - the "fresh" and the "from freezer" version - and both times they were a resounding hit. My husband prefers it to the standard beef enchiladas I also make, I am pretty sure!"

"I make this recipe alot!

My family & friends love it and I have to say I've never had anyone
Try it without asking me if they can have the recipe. I even use just regular ground beef in it sometimes. ..still yummy as ever. Love this great recipe...thanks to the cooks for sharing it!!"

"These enchiladas are pretty good! I loved the use of Greek yogurt as "sour cream" I used 2% Fage Greek yogurt. It's the only one I've found that I like. These enchiladas also freeze well."
