    This is loosely based upon a recipe that I found almost 30 years ago in the KC newspaper. Over the years it has further evolved and is still a family favorite.

      Fabulous easy weeknight meal!!! I've made this with leftover carnitas, and with shredded chicken. I've used lowfat cheese and lowfat sour cream each time. Once, I didn't have quite enough sour cream on hand and added a little milk to the enchilada sauce, and we liked it that way even better. This is a quick, tasty, versitile recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!
