Excellent recipe. This is the first time I have attempted to make enchiladas and they turned out wonderfully! My entire family devoured them. I doubled the recipe and froze half for later and also used shredded chicken. I would suggest to set out all ingredients before you start. I was a bit unorganized and it took much longer.
