  1. Heat oil in small skillet; fry tortillas in hot oil on for 1-2 seconds on each side to soften; drain tortillas on absorbent paper.

I've decided that 5 star recipes are very yummy, easy to make, and will definitely be made again ... we have a winner!! We used your enchilada sauce recipe as well. Thanks so much for this comforting, taste of Mexican recipe. Oops, just realized I forgot to add the parm in the sauce...ah well, tasted great without. We used jalapeno Jack cheese on the inside, and it was perfect for us.

My husband is learning to cook so we don't have to eat take out when I am ill. He chose this dish and he said the direction were easy for him to follow. The only thing he did different was to use less enchilada sauce. The enchiladas tasted great. Thanks Deb's Recipes. Bullwinkle.

Easy and delicious. I just zapped the tortillas in the microwave and made as directed using Deb's easy cheesy enchilada sauce #136735, and used sliced olives and sour cream for garnish.
