    Ridgely's Note:

    A layered enchilada dish that is creamy and rich with a tangy tomatillo sauce. Delicious! From Bon Appetit September issue of this year. The amount of cheese could easily be reduced for this dish, but mmm...yum! The kids loved it!

      So I was in the process of posting this recipe when I checked and saw that you already had! I made it this evening and it was wonderful!!! Really rather easy as well. I actually made it in 2 7x11 pans and only used about 1/4 C of cream on each pan but that was enough...turned out really flavorful. Hot and bubbly with a really authentic taste. I did use whole milk mozerella as the original recipe called for, but I imagine regular mozerella would also work fine. Thanks for posting:)
