Made it according to the former list of ingredients(condensed milk) and it is a inedible due to the sweetness. Oh well thats a few dollars in the garbage. Dont know if I want to retry it with the updated list(evaporated milk).
For chef CarrolJ who rated this recipe...Do not use condensed milk..it is sweet.. that is why your results turned out too sweet.The recipe calls for EVAPORATED canned milk which is not sweet. "Condensed" milk is usually used in desserts or sweet dishes.
I also was very suspicious of the condensed milk. But I was also fascinated with the recipe and decided to take a chance. I used tortilla chips since we do not care for corn chips. I was also unsure of how much red enchalada sauce to use since it is sold in so many different size cans and the recipe didn't say how big a can to use. Although I usually make red enchalada sauce homemade...I almost bought it in the store until I saw the various sizes. I filled one of the soup cans twice with my homemade red sauce since I thought that would estimate a medium sized can. I was also concerned about it not being spicey enough for my husband and son. I tasted the combined sauces after boiling as instructed and decided it needed more 'heat' so served a jar of my homemade salsa(recipe # 9272) on the side and told them that they may want to add more spice to the dish. Both of them complained it was too sweet...but said it was good. Would you believe that they ate 3/4 of the pan by themselves!!! My son said, "make that again but cut down on the sweet taste." I will make it again and probably cut the sweet by at least 1/3 and see if that takes care of it. P.S. I didn't tell them ahead of time what the unusual ingredient was because I didn't want them swayed by it.
