    Delish's Note:

    This is the enchilada recipe my mom used when I was growing up. It is different in that is uses cream cheese. Oh it is so yummy....the memories just flood back. I believe it comes from a Pace Picante Tex Mex recipe. I like to serve it with my Lone Star Spanish Rice. Check it out in my recipes.

      This was very good. The whole family liked it. I did go ahead and use the whole 8oz block of cream cheese to keep from wasting it and I used the low fat variety. I would cut my cumin to 1t. next time and take a taste before adding the 2nd as the sauce was a bit overpowered by it. I think I might try this recipe again with flour tortillas.

      I loved the filling! I didn't fry the tortillas first. I filled then, then just brushed them with olive oil, then sprinkled with cheese. Delicious.

      Wonderful!! I made them with some baked chicken leftovers. Really creamy and not to spicy. I used mild picante sauce. I also doubled the recipe and am going to freeze one pan to cook next week.
