I thought it was great and the Directions were very easy 10x15 is the size of the dish you use. Great job.

We found this to be a good "base" recipe. THey were easy and tasty, but did not have any Mexican "zing" to them. I will make them again, but I will add a can of chopped green chilis to the meatballs, and have a greater ratio of enchilada sauce to tomato sauce rather than the other way around. Don't get me wrong....these were good, just not very zesty.
