      What a great dish! I only made one change and that was to add 8 ozs of taco sauce and about a half cup of sour cream to the enchilada sauce. I have a feeling I'll be making this recipe quite often. Up date. I've now made this frying the corn torts and microwaving them to make them soft. The microwave is the way to go, it really cuts out a lot of grease from the finished product, and is much easier. UP DATE to the last up date...To make this easier to prepare I now make it like lasagna. I put down enchilada sauce a layer of corn tortillas, followed by the meat then a layer of cheese then another layer of tortillas. I top it off with enchilada sauce and cheese. The prep goes so much quicker using this method.

      I added a little more onion, salt, and a can of green chilis. I also used flour tortillas because that is what I had on hand. They turned out great, especially with frying them a little which kept them crispy. My husband polished off the leftovers and wanted more!

      I made the beef ones and there were hardly any leftovers. My DS and DH ate almost all of them in one sitting. These were easy to make. I used 2 10 ounce cans of enchilada sauce and came out perfect. Next time I will try the chicken. Thanks for an easy and simple recipe.
