I created this twist on enchiladas one night when I wanted an easy oven meal and had extra tortillas on hand. It turned out better than I expected. Pair it with steamed green beans or a tossed salad, and dinner is ready! —Yvonne Opp, Greenville, Pennsylvania

"this looked to be yummy so i was excited to try this and actually thought the flavors of pepperoni and sausage in a tortilla were good!!! however something w/the sauce just seemed tasteless even w/all the spices in it - not sure if it was the paste or what but my family said it was just "ok" I will prob try again but maybe even use my own spaghetti sauce and see what happens but i love the creativity of it!"
