Cheese Enchiladas

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Miss Diggy

These are what my DH requested on Father's Day of 2007. So, looking through my cupboards I realized that I didn't have a few things I needed for my enchilada sauce, nor corn tortillas, so I created my own. I hope that you enjoy this!

Awesome! We used cheddar and jack instead of mozzarella, but I think mozz. would have been good too. The best part of these are the sauce. The only other change I made was to omit the onion because I don't care for them. Next time, I may cut the water down to 3 cups as my enchiladas were floating in sauce:) I will make these again for sure. Made for My-3-Chefs 2009.
