I enjoyed this recipe. I added chicken to the recipe to make it more hardy, plus it helped to cut down on the richness of the cheese. I added double the cheese mixture inside because I didn't feel that the original recipe supplied enough filling. I would make again with just those minor adjustments!
Great easy Mexican meal, just as easy as preparing a taco kit. I didn't have cumin seed or crushed cumin, so I just used regular grouond cumin as 1-to-1 ratio.
This is a very good recipe for cheese enchiladas and also works well for chicken enchiladas.
Love these enchiladas! I use pepper jack cheese and sometimes I add shredded chicken to make it more hearty.
I have been making this recipe for years and we all enjoy it. It's so simple, and adaptable too. I often make it without the Monterey Jack cheese and use all cheddar -- or sometimes I will substitute a Mexican cheese blend for the entire quantity of cheese. Yesterday I used chives instead of green onions (because I had chives in my garden and no green onions on hand). Any color of sweet pepper will work -- green, red, orange, yellow. I often use salsa instead of picante sauce. Authentic-tasting Mexican food in minutes!
