    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    A while ago as I was leafing through a magazine, I came upon a page advertising Crisco oil. I don't know why, but it caught my eye. It might have been the picture, or it might have been the way the recipe was printed on the page. I ripped the page out (it was my magazine) and tried it that night. My husband loved it--me too. I made everything according to the directions. I did make Guacamole to put on the top. The whole thing came out great; even the Enchilada sauce was delicious which I will use on other Mexican recipes. I have made it many times since.

      Wow so good I had been looking for one that had the enchilada sauce homemade and this was it followed all directions cooked chicken tenders in crockpot with canned ( last one ever ) enchiladas sauce and green chilis 4 hours high. Didnt know how much I had till I measured it out had enough to freeze for a second time. Very easy and I was glad as I wasnt feeling well but my husband and nephew were and hungry they ate every bit. Oh the only thing I did do different was I use flour don't care for the corn and just heated them in microwave really good thanx
