    Annacia's Note:

    This is a creamy enchalada recipe that is mildly spiced. No Scotch Bonnets or even jalapenos here. It's quick to make and great for a week night or lazy weekend.

      Very nice enchilada variation - creamy and, indeed, mildly spiced. I made Mesa Red Sauce
      for the sauce and used corn tortillas. I halved the recipe, which gave me enough filling for 8 corn tortillas - perfect! Thanks for sharing!

      I used whole wheat tortillas and they were delicious! Dollop of sour cream and some black olives on top and away we ate!

      I cut this in half, and made 5 enchiladas in a 6.5 x 9 inch pan. The filling in these is absolutely decadent (okay, I used all full fat ingredients- I make enchiladas too seldom to skimp), and since I have a cold, I added a good dash of cayenne pepper so I could actually taste what I'd made. I had some smoked chicken meat in the freezer from another recipe, otherwise I made as written, adding the dash of cayenne. For the enchilada sauce, I chose a medium spiced red variety, which is my personal favorite. If I was serving to a spice-free crowd, I'd use mild, and everyone would be happy. This is so easy to make that I expect it to be a standby recipe when I need to satisfy a Mexican food craving. Quick to make on a weeknight, easy enough to halve or double as needed, and sure to satisfy a crowd.
