Chili 'n' Cheese Enchiladas Recipe

I combined two of my family's favorite flavors to invent this dish—and ever since, I've gotten more requests for it than I can remember!—Kim Prorok, North Fort Myers, Florida

"This is a keeper recipe in this house! I did the shortcut that someone suggested, and used canned chili, and it works out well!"

"Really fun & delicious way of making enchiladas! (good idea on adding rice too) Dh stated we could have these again, which for him is high praise. I did use corn tortillas and fried them briefly first. A winner!"

"Really good! I was pretty nervous it would turn out funky, but we loved it! Awesome mix of chili and enchilada. I put rice inside the enchiladas was the only difference."

"Insted of making the chili in the recipe, I just used a can of chili and put cheese in side the tortia shell and then cheese on top. My picky family loved it!"
