This really hit the spot, DanzBaby. It turned out exactly as you said, rich, creamy and delicious. This will be a great dish to make when we are traveling and for our potluck dinners too. It's a keeper and I thank you for sharing it.

I made these for dinner last night and my boyfriend said they were delicious. I left out the green chiles and had to use red enchilada sauce, because Scott won't eat green sauce, but when I make them to again, I will definitely try the green sauce. Easy to make and for sure a keeper. Thanks for sharing after 15 years.
