So great. The filling is wonderful. I didn't have green onions on hand so I used chopped red onions. I liked that the sauce was so easy. I did just like you suggested and used one can of red enchilada sauce and then one can of green enchilada sauce on top. I liked that this didn't have a creamy sauce. Made me feel like I was saving some calories except that I added extra monterey jack! I will definitely make again. Thank you!

  9. Serves 6-6 I have doubled this recipe before- experiment around with the enchilada sauce-- I prefer one can of green sauce and 1 red sauce-- but you can use whatever you like-- also you can add more cheese on the top-- these really are yummy!
  10. hope ya like them-- also you can use the hot enchilada sauce instead of the mild, we just use the mild because of my kids-- they love this recipe-- not to spicy for them.
