I love spicy food, but I think the creaminess of these enchiladas' topping makes them more friendly to a variety of tastes. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

"Oh, these were SUPERB! I actually don't usually like buffalo wings because they are too spicy, but I loved this recipe! Very easy too. My husband added extra hot sauce on his but he loved them & wants me to make them again on Superbowl Sunday!"

"Pretty much love Buffalo everything but did not love these. I thought they were pretty bland, and I even added crumbled blue cheese to the sauce. Just mediocre for me, and while extremely easy and quick to make, I probably would skip making these again."

"I made these for a casual dinner with my sister and a friend. My friend loved them, but I thought they were a bit sour and lacking seasoning. Perhaps replace the blue cheese dressing with ranch and ad some other spices?"
