"Have made this recipe a lot over the years, we love it. It is always well received. Sometimes I buy the enchilada sauce in the can to make it a bit easier. Extra cheese and garlic is always a good idea. Don't leave out the beans, you can even use fat free refried beans in the hot style to give it zip."
"This is a very good recipe. I used 6 cups of cheese which made it nice and gooey."
"This was a very good dish. I did add taco seasoning to the meat sauce because it just needed more flavor to us. Other than that, it was great!"
"My husband and I really enjoyed this! I halved everything and used 3, 10 inch tortillas and layered in a 10 inch pie plate. There was enough for dinner and lunches the next day."
"I make this all the time. I make the enchilada sauce according to the package directions (2 cups water per package), which is great b/c I prefer it saucyer. No need to add the garlic or pepper. after the beef is browned, drained and rinsed, I add it back to the pan add 1/3 or the sauce and the refried beans. No need to futts around w/the beans seperately. Sometimes I add chopped green chilies for more flavor. Great w/sour cream and jalapenos. Easy to play around with to make different each time. Enjoy."
