    BecR's Note:

    I've had this enchilada recipe for ages, and make it often. It is my husband's favorite casserole.:-) Wonderful! I usually double the mild green chiles, and use light sour cream and "healthy request" soup. Note: My family prefers these enchiladas made with corn tortillas, but feel free to use flour tortillas. ENJOY!!

      I cooked this in a crock pot, layering the ingredients instead of rolling in the tortillas. I'm sure I used fewer tortillas (8-10). But, this was terrific. Everyone loved it.

      I have been making the original recipe ever since I found it in a church cookbook 20 or so years ago. I made this recipe using both kinds of soup. We loved it. The nacho cheese added a nice flavor twist on an old family favorite. Thanks BecR. Bullwinkle

      I still gave this five stars even though I altered (slightly) the recipe. They were simply fab and Mom approved. (no kids here to please, lol) Have made them 2x so far, and plan to do again. Yummy.
