    wife2abadge's Note:

    From Evelyn Tribole's Healthy Homestyle Cooking. I usually layer the tortillas with the filling ingredients to make a casserole rather than fiddle with filling them. We eat them with chopped onions, shredded lettuce, and salsa over the top.

      These were excellent! I tore the tortillas into pieces, and added them to everything else, including the enchilada sauce. Topped with the cheddar cheese and baked covered for 30 minutes. It couldn't have been any easier. Thanks for sharing a recipe I will use often.
