Cheese enchiladas the way they should be. Full of cheese!

Top Review by HEP MEP

I made these for dinner tonight,and must say that we liked them very much. I only added a tsp. of chili powder to the sauce and a bit of cumin,and it was downright tasty! The only change I'll make the next time,is to skip the onions - they really didn't soften, and I did add chopped chiles,because we like them. But,as I said, the sauce is wonderful, and I will make these again. Have done it many times before, but the sauce pretty much bit it...Thanks!

  9. Pour remaining sauce evenly over the enchiladas, top with any remaining cheese, onions and olives.
