I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar and changed the ingredients up a bit to accomodate my families taste. This is so quick and easy! Perfect for a busy weekday meal.

Not bad for such a quick meal. I chose to top it with sourcream, and I also used an entire can of corn, and added more enchilada sauce. The consistency was still fairly thick. I wish I would have added more jalapenos as well!
