We enjoyed this cheesy enchilada dish, In place of the Rotel tomatoes (cant get here) I used Italian tomatoes which had chili and garlic worked fine. Loved the flavours of the 3 different cheeses. Thanks for sharing.

  9. While baking, combine all cheeses well.
  10. After the 20 minutes cooking time, remove enchiladas from oven, cover completely with the cheeses, and bake for 5 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.
