We moved to Southern California many years ago from Minnesota. We especially like the Mexican food that's served here. These enchiladas have become a family favorite.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2012

What I love about this recipe most of all is the homemade enchilada sauce that I can use for a variety of recipes. But, these are absolutely fantastic...so much flavor, and so easy. I use fresh spinach, cooked and drained. Very yummy.

So good, so satisfying, so delicious! The sauce was awesome. I will use it again for any recipe calling for enchilada sauce. I had a can of Italian tomato paste, and used it. I was worried that it would end up Italian-ish, but it was just delicious. I used 2% cottage cheese, fresh spinach that I steamed until very wilted (and drained it), 2% Mexican cheese blend, and the full 4 tsp of chili powder. Oh, and I used chives from my garden instead of green onions (because that's all I had). I will make this again and again!

My wife and I were having an enchilada craving, but didn't want anything too heavy. These were absolutely awesome, and just as delicious reheated the next day. We even found that they freeze well for a lunch that will make others come snooping! Fantastic!

Very good! Loved how easy the sauce was and the filling was very good too! Being from Wisconsin, I did add a bit of extra cheese both inside and out :-)
