I've had this recipe so long that I don't remember who gave it to me. Before I retired, these tasty little treats were popular during snack time at work. They're a good way to use up leftover corn bread.—Mearl Harris, West Plains, Missouri

I live in NM and make my own red chile sauce and keep some in the freezer. So I used my own instead of the canned sauce. That's the only change I made. Next best thing to enchiladas themselves!
