This recipe was such a winner! I need some mild modifications because we eat Mexican food all the time and have a pallet for those flavors.I added finely chopped onion the refried beans and cottage cheese prior to baking, and also at a couple of teaspoons of taco seasoning to flavor it up. I also took a shortcut by using Walmart brand mild enchilada sauce. I used two cans to make sure the tortillas where we'll go to do with sauce and there was extra to put over the
enchiladas prior to cooking. in addition I added a good deal more cheese on top of the enchiladas, black olives, and chives for color. They came out hot, and delicious with a fabulous Southwest flavor without having to go to the closest Mexican restaurant.
I fournd this recipe pretty boring and a little bland. Though not bad-tasting, I didn't feel it was worth the effort.
I followed the recipe exactly. These were edible, but not what I'd call good. They had an odd taste - maybe the cottage cheese?
These were a hit from Dad to kids. They were happy to have leftovers.
A very satisfying and inexpensive dinner, my four children and a more meat and potatoes husband can't get enough!
