Reviews for Stacked Enchilada
"Really liked this and I'll make it again!"
"Very good!! My fianc? really liked it, even though he's not a Mexican fan. I added some leftover corn from the cob with the green pepper. I also used up the tortillas, and moistened it with a little more sauce. It's definitely a make again recipe."
"Very good!! Easy recipe to make with ingredients I had on hand. Would definitely make again."
"Very good! I added a can of shoepeg corn and would definitely make it again."
"Dry and nothing special. Would rather make enchiladas."
"Very good! quick & easy."
"This is the best recipe. I/We love mexican food and this is the bomb. Will make this many times. Thank you for sharing."
"We really liked this. Had to cut the sodium way down so I used canned black beans with no salt added, I have a salsa I get through the Heart healthy Market that has no salt which I used instead of picante sauce (natural foods shelves of the grocery have some salsas that are really low but not "sodium-free"). I used chopped fresh tomatoes and green chiles instead of enchilada sauce. Cut about 2/3 of the salt out. I did use a layer of fresh spinach...just because I wanted to sneak it in. Oh I also doubled the recipe because I noticed someone else used a bigger pan. These reviews have helpful ideas!"
