    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!
