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

MY REVIEW

"Incredible! I used half the amount of cream cheese like others had suggested and it was superb! Thanks for sharing."

MY REVIEW

"These are like the good ol' classic enchiladas that I grew up with in the Midwest. I froze them in 3-serving batches so my husband and I could have dinner and I'd have leftovers for lunch the next day. Good deal. I used corn tortillas to avoid the gumminess that comes from letting flour tortillas sit in sauce too long. Next time I make them, I'll crank up the spice level. They're really mild (but so creamy!)."

"This IS NOT a recipe for enchiladas. Enchiladas use corn tortillas--NOT FLOUR. That automatically makes them burritos."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 5, 2015

"Everything but the cream cheese. Not healthy, and just fat so leave out. 13 grams fat per 1 little enchilada is NOT healthy!!"

"This is a FABULOUS quick recipe. I used ground chicken breast and made my own taco seasoning to omit the salt. Same with the sauce, made my own to reduce the sodium count. I also made them in the Reynolds freezer pans. 3 fits very nicely and perfect amount for hubs and I. Serve with chopped avocado salad and you have a complete meal. Thank you for sharing."
