    We thoroughly enjoyed this for dinner. I always make as the recipe states the first time and I see where there is flexibility to make this to your own personal tastes. Love quick, versatile, and delicious recipes and that's exactly what this is.

    Nice but maybe better with chorizo and queso fresco instead of cottage cheese.

    This is a favorite for my family and I gave the recipe to a friend, he and his wife loved it so much he called me that night at work to tell me so!!

    This tastes like a combination of a breakfast quiche (sausage & egg) and cheese enchiladas (corn tortilla & cheese). It was yummy though quite fattening even though I did use reduced fat sausage and milk instead of cream. It was good and different but I don't think my husband enjoyed it as much as I did, so I am not sure if I will make it again.

    I made this with half bacon and half sausage (due to different preferences in my work group) and it was very well received!
