Reviews for Refried Bean Enchiladas
"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 theenchiladas 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!"
"I've made this several times; however last night I forgot to buy the cottage cheese, so I replaced it with 1 cup Mexican cheese. My husband and I liked it sooo much more! The cottage cheese is good, but this was better. It does seem like a lot of cheese mixed with the beans, but it all melts together in the oven for a nice creamy filling."
"I thought this needed something to spice it up - maybe diced green chilies. It was good, but very mild."
"My daughter says "mom it tastes just like El Rodeo's". Her favorite place to eat Mexican food."
