This is just how we made it when I was growing up and I still make it this way. Restaurants in Mexico make it this way too. I also make my own enchilada sauce.

These are what we call New Mexico style enchiladas. I make these quite frequently. The recipe is very easily reduced or increased as needed. My warming drawer makes these a snap to put together. Thanks Chef Janet for posting.
