Excellent! I use Sysco Chicken base to make my broth, my homemade canned salsa and half flour tortillas and half corn tortillas. There is nothing that I would substitute. The spices are just right for our family and so easy to put together. I used to layer the sauce ingredients, not any more. This is the recipe I will use. Thanks for posting!

Wow! I've never made enchiladas or tasted enchiladas that were this good! I only made half the recipe (4 pieces), and there was enough sauce for 6. I did use cumin in place or coriander and heavily seasoned the sauce and the meat mixture to better suit our tastes with my own taco blend. I also used corn tortillas because that's what we have. Light sour cream worked just fine. We will definitely have this again and maybe try it with shrimp and crab. Thanks for the terrific recipe!

I just made these, and they're pretty good. I will definitely cut the cheese sauce recipe in half and add some more seasonings next time I decide to make these.
