      Yum! These were excellent--a real hit! I especially loved the green enchilada sauce. I'd never made my own sauce before, and this was the best! I imagine it could be made ahead of time and frozen in order to make extra-quick enchiladas. Next time, I may reserve a little more of the sauce, heat it, and pour it over the enchiladas just before serving to make them saucier. Excellent!
