I found this recipe in the "Healthy Bites" publication in my local Weis grocery store and I am posting for safe keeping. It was featured in the "Serve Up Savings" section of the magazine. You could probably add taco meat to make this a carnivorous dish.

I made these for a bunch of college students that I live with. I didn't eat it myself, but I was told that they were good and all of the enchiladas were eaten within two days. Also, this really was an inexpensive meal to make.
