I started making these enchiladas last year during the lent season. It allows my family to observe lent and still enjoy Mexican food. When I brought it to school, my coworkers couldn't get enough of it.—Mari Acedo, Chandler, Arizona

Really enjoyed this. Had this at a restaurant years ago and was happy to find a recipe. @csls, this recipe was in the December 2013 issue of Taste of Home.

We've found a new go-to recipe in our house! I made several alterations but it was still wonderfully tasty. I did not fry the tortillas (used flour tortillas instead of corn), omitted the onion and cut the garlic in half but there is still plenty of flavor thanks to the cumin. I also found that only 1 can of enchilada sauce is more than adequate.

Since my husband does not like shrimp, I had to substitute shrimp with chicken, but it was very good. I baked it without the enchilada sauce, I poured the sauce after baking. We loved it!

My husband and I liked this; the kids were so-so. I used only 1 can of salsa verde and that was plenty, we thought. The shrimp and veggies make a nice filling for the tortillas.
