My family loves this for dinner. However I do use cumin in it instead of coriander. And I also make a little more of the sauce and pour over the top of the enchiladas then shredded cheese. Always a big hit.
I made this for dinner last week and it was nice and simple and delicious! My family liked them and I had a ton left over (I had enough filling 18 enchiladas) so I froze them. I will probably substitute cumin for the coriander next time and I also agree with other reviewers that it's nice that the sauce didn't contain a can of soup like so many other recipes.
I doubled the recipe to make for my family last weekend and they loved them. I have Crohn's disease and can't eat overly spicy food. This was just right, not too spicy.
This was very, very good and very easy! I used corn tortillas instead of flour because we do like them better and used cumin instead of coriander. I agree with the comment that it's nice it doesn't call for any soup. I had some fajita chicken breasts that I cooked and shredded which gave it even more of a spicy flavor . Very yummy. This will be one of our favorites . . . thank you for a great recipe!
Delicious and easy to make. My husband loved the taste and it was not too spicy.
