I love these cheese enchiladas. My mom has had this recipe forever. I'm sure you could add chicken or some other meat if you like, but I like these just the way they are!

This recipe was easy and mildly spiced so I was able to make it up for a party of 10. The only change is that I chose to not add salt and found the recipe excellent.
