I have this as my favorite for my family. They are wonderful and easy to make.
I made this for the first time for a Cinco de Mayo dinner. They were delicious and can be made ahead and baked just before serving. I used flour tortillas since I couldn't find corn.
These enchiladas are so good. I always have the ingredients on hand and they are so easy to make! Even my picky eater loves them! :)
These are very easy to prepare, and very delicious. I tweaked the seasonings just a bit: I used half chipotle chili powder and half regular (medium-hot) chili powder in the meat mixture, and substituted the chipotle chili powder for the cayenne pepper in the sauce. As always, I used extra-sharp cheddar. Served the enchiladas with Mexican rice and refried beans. Yum!
