"Excellent! Flavorful & healthy. Followed the recipe to the letter. Next time, though, I will use a little more enchilada sauce."

"This recipe is so good and a healthier version of most! The wheat tortillas give it a fresh different taste. Who says you can't have enchiladas and still watch your diet?"

"This recipe was good. I added sweet potatoes, fresh cilantro and used salsa instead of the enchilada sauce. We used more cheese and sauce than the recipe called for. I think this is a good basic recipe that we will use many variations on. We served this recipe with sour cream."

"Good recipe. The next time I make this dish I will use fresh cilantro, add some cubes chicken and cover the enchiladas before baking. Garnish with shredded lettuce. This is a really good basic recipe for those watching their weight."

"I made this recipe almost as written but omitted the mushrooms, and added some spinach (a box of frozen, chopped - I unthawed and drained before adding). It turned out delicious and the whole family (including my picky 8-year-old son and 4-year-old twin daughters) ate it! This was great because I'm always trying to sneak more veggies into my kids' diets! I used some plain yogurt as "sour cream" that people could add if they wanted. My kids asked if we could have this again for dinner tomorrow :)"

"Superb flavor. Skipped mushrooms & cilantro flakes; didn't miss them. Very easy to make. Had orange pepper, not green; was tasty. Added chopped olives to the top before baking; topped with light sour cream on top after baking. Also made Calico Corn Cakes as the side for the meal. WOW. Perfect duet; mellow, rich flavor. Will make pair again! Try it!"

"Very good! I used corn tortillas and left out the mushrooms, put a little cheese inside each enchilada before rolling them, and increased the sauce to 1 cup, topping it with a chopped green onion berfore baking. My husband loved them, and he's the "where's the meat?" type. He didn't even miss it. Very tasty!"

"I kind of agree with cheeriogirl about the mushrooms not fitting, but since I love mushrooms next time I'll chop them to be the size of the beans and corn so they fit in better. Overall, a very good recipe."
