    We did not care for this dish. It lacked flavor and the tortillas were over-whelming. We doused it with Chipotle Tabasco sauce which helped a bit. I thought it would taste more like enchiladas, but could barely taste the enchilada.

    Family loved it. I used 2 lbs of meat, corn tortillas, and 2 cans of enchilada sauce.

    Made this recipe and got rave reviews. I used 2 lbs. of hamburger and this made it really meaty.

    My sentiments exactly BeMoWe. In New Mexico we use corn tortillas instead of the flour tortillas and use a real red chile sauce. Much more flavorful. A green chile sauce can be substituted for the red, if you prefer.

    I followed this exactly. The flavor didn't remind me of enchiladas - more like several other ground beef casseroles I have had. But the part that really disappointed me was how incredibly soggy and pasty the tortillas in the middle layer were! If I make this again, I will only put the tortillas on the top, just below a layer of grated cheese.

    Love love love! I used cooked lasagna noodles instead of tortillas because we didn't like how mushy the tortillas got. And for sure 2 teaspoons of cumin. One of our favorite dishes! We make this a lot. I serve on top pico de gallo made of tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.

    Dinner tonight was fabulous, thanks! I didn't make any changes and turned out a favorite. Husband literally licked his plate. The flavor wasn't overpowering, but just spicy enough and enjoyed the cottage cheese mixture. Will be making again for sure.

    Easy to make and so good! I loved it and so did my family! Would definitely make this recipe again!

    I thought this was just ok. It wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be. I would consider it to be more like a burrito than an enchilada.
