Great idea, needs work. Cooked just like it said, the dough doesn't cook all the way through. I really like the idea as an alternative to tortillas, but I need to play with the execution. Could be me! The dough was a little sweet for my tastes, but that could have been because it wasn't fully cooked yet or I need a different brand of enchilada sauce to go with it.
