This is a great recipe for enchiladas. The flour tortillas are good but we still use corn ones. The sauce is great and garlicy. You can lower the sage according to your taste, we like more cumin and less sage but the recipe is delicious any way you make it. You can add cilantro and onion to the beef before you wrap em. So so good!!
I've been making this for 15 years, ever since I found it in my 1999 Taste of Home cookbook. Over the years I've tweaked a bit, for example, we love garlic so I use fresh garlic in the sauce as well as the meat mixture. I use Rotel milder tomatoes instead of plain stewed tomatoes. Sometimes I add rice to the meat...I've even added sweet corn & black beans a few times. I left out the sage for years, just because I never cooked with it. But I started to add it about 5 years ago & it does make a difference. All around a great recipe that's easy to modify for your own personal tastes.
We really enjoy these! We've made with chicken as well as beef. We have also made a pan and frozen them to bake when we needed however we will also bake and then freeze in individual containers (vac pack) for individual frozen meals when we're in a hurry.
Good meal. Different than traditional enchiladas the garlic taste makes it more unique.
I agree with some of the other reviewers. The extra 1/2 tsp of salt is not needed its already salty from the beef broth. Also I would use corn tortillas, like the texture better, not so soft like the flour. And I would omit the garlic... to me thats not really authentic Mexican, think I'll add jalapeno instead. also sauce did taste a bit floury.. Was good, but think I'll keep looking for a more authentic Mexican recipe. And was not bland at all!! I dont know where some of these ppl's taste buds are!
