    From "Recipe Hall of Fame" cookbook. This is the best ! Creamy & cheesy. May be prepared the day before or may be frozen. If preparing ahead, add sauce just before baking.

      I'm giving this 5 stars because the sauce is OFF THE HOOK! I've never had enchiladas with such a creamy-rich, wonderful sauce. However, I felt the chili-powder seasoned ground beef seemed a little dry and out of place with the green chiles in the sauce, or that it needed a "binder' somehow, since the ground beef crumbles out of these while eating (perhaps I should have added more cheese?). Regardless -- the overall flavor is excellent. I feel that chunked or shredded meat -- especially chicken or pork -- would be even better (maybe throw in some cumin, mix a little sauce with the meat, add sliced green onions and diced green chiles to the filling?). I will definitely make these again, with these minor revisions. I teetered between 4 and 5 stars, then settled on five, because of this AWESOME, unforgettable sauce! (PLEASE NOTE: I used a 7 ounce can of diced green chiles in the sauce rather than 4 ounces, since it was all I had. I added all 7 ounces). Thank you for sharing! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
