We used homemade guacamole on these as a sauce instead of enchilada sauce. The enchiladas were easy and wonderful! We just prefer the guac. Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic! This recipe has a funny story for me. I had copied this EXACT recipe out of a Sunset magazine at the chiropractor's office, but had never made it. When I saw it here, I is the time. I was really tired of just plain left-over holiday turkey and made these little gems. They were absolutely wonderful! Next time I might add some olives and red onion just because I like them. Barb, thanks for an easy and wonderful recipe!

Easy recipe with a nice turn out. I used turkey and flour tortillas that I heated to make soft over a burner instead of oil. I added crushed garlic and onions to the filling. Was going to use a red salsa, but decided to use a green. Made 6 nice size enchiladas. Thank you for posting Barb! I will fix these again.
