"I like spinach and thought I would really like it. But I didn't like as well as i thought I would."

"I had problems with the corn tortillas falling apart. I didn't quite know how to make them pliable. Not too much flavor - needed a little more kick! I did like the filling, but my husband doesn't want repeats. He used the salt shaker a lot. It was worth the try though!"

"I added chicken tenderloins to the recipe and substituted Ricotta cheese for cottage cheese. I was very pleased with the taste of the mixture, as well as the sauce. I will definitely make these again. A great change up from your usual enchiladas."
