I followed this recipe to the letter and it came out perfect. My three boys, who have eaten in many Mexican restaurants, loved it! Very filling and tastes "sinful"! Thanks for a great recipe!
So good. I followed the recipe and liked it. My only regret was making only one pan! Very filling.
My family really liked this recipe. My 6 yr old son said he didn't like it, he LOVED it! And my husband had a hard time staying out of them.
I found the 3 TB of cream cheese/sour cream mix and the 1/3 cup of turkey mix to be too much for one tortilla. I was using the 6 in tortillas, so that might make a difference. I ended up getting 12 enchiladas out of this recipe. With the number of enchiladas I had, I found the sauce to be just the right amount. I was afraid the enchiladas might be too spicy, but the tomatoes did a good job of diluting it.
Very good recipe. I will definitely make it again.
I thought this was very tasty! I had to eat two though!
This is really good. I agree with the previous reviewer though, there is too much sauce mixture. The bottom of my enchiladas were quite soggy. I think I will try a smaller can of tomatoes along with the salsa next time. Also, I only used 1/2 lb. of ground meat and added in a can of rinsed and drained black beans. All in all, it was very good and my family enjoyed it.
