    Engrossed's Note:

    Tastes like enchiladas! Yummy and healthier than regular enchiladas. Adapted from Sunset. *This has become my most popular recipe posted here. I've made it slightly different ways over the years. I sprinkle the oiled eggplant with garlic salt now. It's also great with a can of diced tomatoes and 1tbsp of tomato paste, extra cumin, garlic, dried onions, salt and cilantro. I also use reduced-fat cheese now. If you would like it spicier add some jalapenos. I love to eat it along an undressed salad of romaine, purple cabbage and grape tomatoes and eat bites of the salad and eggplant together with sour cream. Many people think it needs to be heartier so feel free to add beans, ground beef or chicken but I really don't think it needs it. It's also great served with rice.

      I love eggplant and Mexican food...so I knew I had to try this dish, and what a great combo it is! It was easy to make and so delicious! I added minced garlic instead of garlic powder, and also added black beans. Definitely a keeper!

      This was really good! I roasted the eggplants on my gas grill then layered them in the casserole dish with corn tortillas, following the rest of the recipe exactly. Came out delicious. Hubby loved it and it gave me another way (besides eggplant Parmesan) to use up my homegrown eggplants. Thanks.

      This was fabulous! I didn't do exactly to recipe. I didn't have regular garlic powder, so I had to use garlic salt. I couldn't find spring onions, so I just used a sprinkle of dried onion. I also had to substitute two fresh jalapenos for the diced mild chiles. I saw in the other reviews that people were adding tortillas and beans, so I did. I happened to have some fabulous cooked black beans on hand (thanks to my Mexican mother-in-law) and put a lot of it into the layers. Absolutely delicious! In the future, I will probably double up the sauce, increase the tortillas, and double up the eggplant (maybe the one I bought was just too small?). That sucker was gone within about 5 minutes of being made. And yes, it did taste exactly like enchiladas!
