These were quick and easy, and we really loved them. You can customize based on what you have on hand. I like the yogurt instead of sour cream - my family didn't even notice the swap. If you have the time for homemade enchilada sauce, we like to use http://www.food.com/recipe/mexican-enchilada-sauce-109685.
