    invictus's Note:

    This is hands down my favorite meal. Based upon the consensus of the people I have made a minor change to the recipe by sauteeing the onions before putting in the cheese mixture to assist with cooking the onions thoroughly.

      Oh my goodness, these were very tasty enchiladas. I had some sliced olives and jalapeno pepper leftover from another recipe, so I added it to the cheese topping. But otherwise I made this exactly as written. They were very easy to make, and I thought the seasoning amounts were just perfect for our taste buds. Thanks for sharing, Heidi in Seattle. Made for 2009 Zaar World Tour #5.

      Great cheese enchiladas! Would add in some jalapenos for spice or maybe some spinach. Makes quite a bit of sauce, probably more than needed. Used 1 1/2 times the sauce recipe for double the filling. May try freezing these since we had quite a bit left over.
