    Cookgirl's Note:

    I combined my love for cottage cheese and cheese, basing this easy recipe on several cottage cheese enchilada recipes found on the web. (The big difference in this particular case being that I cut out several unnecessary ingredients.) The first time I prepared these enchiladas was for the sole purpose of using up an excess amount of cheese in the frig: cottage cheese, cheddar and mizithra. So, don't worry if you don't have mizithra on hand. Top with the enchilada sauce used in my great-grandmother's recipe: Molly's Cheese Enchiladas or any good tomatillo salsa and garnish, if you wish, with a dollop of: Guacamole Muy Facil or sour cream!

      We used a colby jack cheese and also added olives to the mixture. My family loved this dish and I love that it is low calorie. Next time we're going to double it so we have leftovers. I will also try it exactly as written. I love cotija cheese but didn't have that on had when we made this.

      I made half the recipe and didn't think I would like it so much. Instead of mizithra cheese, I used low-fat mozzarella. I used red enchilada sauce that I made last week. I served it with chopped green onion, fresh chives and fat-free sour cream. Delish! I'll do it again but will add sauteed mushrooms. Thanks Cookgirl :) Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5
