Very good and easy and the kids loved it. I appreciate having a freezer portion for later, too!

This was okay. It could use more flavor, but it was okay. I ended up dumping the whole portion of meat mix in a 13x9, with chopped tortillas layered in (the baby started to cry and I gave up on rolling!). It worked, but I probably won't make it again.

I have tried a lot of the recipes, and enjoyed them, but how do you reduce the servings???

I added some more spice as my family likes it hot. Good recipe with half the cheese.

Incredible! I used half the amount of cream cheese like others had suggested and it was superb! Thanks for sharing.

These are like the good ol' classic enchiladas that I grew up with in the Midwest. I froze them in 3-serving batches so my husband and I could have dinner and I'd have leftovers for lunch the next day. Good deal. I used corn tortillas to avoid the gumminess that comes from letting flour tortillas sit in sauce too long. Next time I make them, I'll crank up the spice level. They're really mild (but so creamy!).

This IS NOT a recipe for enchiladas. Enchiladas use corn tortillas--NOT FLOUR. That automatically makes them burritos.
