These American-style enchiladas are rich, creamy and loaded with cheese. Kids will like the texture and the fact that they have just a touch of south-of-the-border heat. Belinda Moran - Woodbury, Tennessee

"So good!"

Reviewed May. 18, 2016

"This dish was very good! I halved the recipe and used corn tortillas instead, which gave the enchiladas alot of flavor and used more enchilada sauce on the bottom and over the top. We garnished them with shredded lettuce, sour cream and diced jalapeno. Simple to make, too! Will definitely make again!"

"Flavors are good, but the dish was somewhat one-note and a big mush. Needed some spiciness."

"I need to use more enchilada sauce on the bottom because they stuck a little bit."
