I can't say that this enchilada recipe was the best one I have ever tried, but it is a good one, and it is a bit healthier than some others that I've tried. We definitely enjoyed this, but I found the sauce to be a bit too "tomato-ey" when made as the recipe instructs. I added about a teaspoon of cumin powder and a pinch of ground sage to give the sauce more flavor. I appreciate that this recipe doesn't use any canned soups or sauces.

Yum!! We loved this casserole - it was delish!! I really like how the cottage cheese adds a creaminess to the recipe, and the enchilada sauce has the perfect flavor and consistency. And, I almost always have everything for this recipe in my fridge & pantry. I follow the recipe exactly except that I add a can of red or chili beans to the meat filling to make it go further. Thank you thank you!!

This was a different kind of enchilada than I've ever tried before and my whole family really enjoyed it. Thanks for the change of pace!

This sauce was GREAT ( I didn't make the enchiladas though)! I had already put together enchiladas and realized that I didn't have any sauce - so I had to throw some together. This was good and I will certainly make it again.

I added 1/2 pk. of taco seasoning to the ground beef, but other than that made per instructions, and it was one tasty dish! Had along with chicken enchiladas, and this was an excellent combination for dinner last night! The sauce was delicious and everyone raved about it. These will be made often as my family gave them 5+ stars!

The enchilada sauce in this recipe is amazing. I added a cup of water to it before pouring it over the enchiladas. The black olives add a nice touch, and the cottage cheese melts down to add some creamy goodness. I will be trying this with cheese alone instead of the beef next time.

This was sooo good!!! There are a lot of enchilada recipes on Zaar - I liked this one because it seemed economical and relatively healthy - especially if you used reduced fat cheeses and tortillas - which I did and also subbed the ground beef for veggie beef. I ended up with a couple extra enchiladas so I put them in a separate dish and topped those with Monterey Jack cheese and some green onions and both were equally fabulous - and even better the next day. This isn't very saucy so when I warmed it up I could eat it like a burrito so it was easy to pack for lunch. I didn't think I would like the olives in here, but I did a lot - it was a nice combo and you couldn't really taste the cottage cheese - it just made the filling a little creamier and richer. The sauce was nice and mild so it was good to serve to the kids too. I will make this often! Thanks!

This is a new family favorite! I did have to make some substitutions for stuff I didn't have, I was out of chili powder so I used cumin and I don't use garlic powder so I used 3 cloves of minced fresh garlic. I used ground turkey instead of beef and they were excellent and very filling too. I've printed this out and tucked it into my file to make again soon.

pretty good but a little mild for me. next time will add some hot peppers to increase fire level.
