This is one of the first recipes I created and cooked for my husband right after we got married. He was so impressed! We fix these creamy enchiladas for friends regularly. —Melissa Rogers, Tuscaloosa, Alabama
"I serve this entree to my husband, my sister and her husband, and received many compliments," notes Rebecca Stout of Conroe, Texas. "My brother-in-law is a hard-to-please eater, so when he said he loved it, I was thrilled. He even took leftovers for lunch the next day.
“I love this creamy, comforting dish because it's easy, tastes amazing, freezes well and reheats easily in the microwave,” says Rachel Smith in Katy, Texas. If you prefer more zip, substitute Pepper Jack cheese for Monterey Jack.
I adapted this recipe from one I got from a television program. The refried beans were a last-minute inspiration when company was coming and I didn't have enough ground beef thawed out! They add extra goodness to this hearty cheesy dish.—Diane McCann, Sterling, Colorado
My husband loves this casserole…but it never lasts too long! Packed with black beans, cheese, tomatoes and Southwest flavor, it's an impressive-looking entree that's as simple as it is simply delicious! —Marsha Wills, Homosassa, Florida
"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."
My daughter, Lisa Sand, brought 10 pans of these yummy chicken enchiladas to my wedding reception and they were the biggest hit of all the food. So many guests wanted the recipe, we sent it out with our Christmas cards. —Pat Coffee, Kingston, Washington
