Reviews for Saucy Cherry Enchiladas
"Made this for a family get together. It was delicious. It it very easy to make, it just takes a lot of time. We are definitely making these again."
"I made this for our Cinco De Mayo party at work & everyone loved them. I'm making them once again this year. They take time but they're well worth it & they're easy to make."
"Excellent recipe! The addition of lemon juice really makes the flavor "pop". I did cut back on the sugar by 1/2 cup, but that's really a personal preference. I also added 2 cans of cherries the second time I made it. Can't wait to try it with blueberries. Thanks for a great, tasty recipe."
"I made the recipe the first time as posted. The next time I did cut the butter to 1/2 cup and increased the pie filling to 2 cans. I put any leftover filling on the top and between the cherry enchiladas. Everytime I take it to a pot-luck, it's the first dessert eaten and everyone wants to know how to make it. They can't believe that it's made with flour tortillas."
