    LaLa Crane's Note:

    A quick, very easy, low clean up way to make enchiladas. I adapted this from a few other recipes. We prefer flour tortillas but you can use corn. Corn does work better if they are warm, so putting them in the microwave for 30-40 seconds makes them more pliable. You can always substitute fresh cooked ground beef, turkey or chicken for the canned meat.

      Easy and quick recipe. I used 1/2 cup salsa instead of the green chiles. Definitely a hit that I'll make again!

      Quick and easy dinner. Would make again though I think I would use a rotisserie chicken or leftover cooked chicken instead of the canned. Made for PAC Fall 2011

      This was very simple to make and my kids who are somewhat picky eaters really liked it. Will be making it for dinner again tonight.
