Made pretty much as directed. I used green enchilada sauce instead of green taco sauce due to personal preference. I froze the uncooked enchiladas without sauce and cheese as I was afraid they would be soggy. When I was ready to cook I took them out to defrost and when they were ready to cook I added the sauce and cheese. They turned out great when cooked fresh. They were also good from frozen. I was afraid to use the combination of red and green but they worked well together.

When I do batch cooking, my husband is disappointed when I don't make these. I usually multiply the recipe to make over 50 enchiladas. We enjoy them a little more spicy, so I saute 3-5 minced chili peppers or 1 habanero with the onions.
