"I created these enchiladas to satisfy several picky eaters in our house," explains Stacy Cizek of Conrad, Iowa. "They were an instant hit and are now requested at least once a week. I especially like that we can enjoy this meal twice by freezing half for a later (and busier) day."

"Our family loves this one! We have tried a few different jarred salsas, but the one we have liked the best for this recipe has been the On The Border Medium Salsa."

"This was definitely a hit, the only thing I changed was to add some canned green Chile's for more spice and less "taco" flavor to the meat mixture. I didn't measure, go according to your taste, they were awesome."
