    This was developed some 40 years ago from a dish served in a restaurant in Mesilla, NM. I have been serving it to branding crews since I was about 15 and took over the "chuckwagon".

      This is yummy, and a good use of green chile in my book. I, too, would increase the garlic and veggies; as it is I used one onion and a very small bell pepper that needed to be used. I used about a bag and a half of cheese (3/4 lb, I believe?) and it was plenty for our tastes. I also used 1/2 c sour cream instead of one of the cans of soup to reduce sodium, and it worked fine. The instructions didn't indicate whether or not to drain the tomatoes, and since I omitted one of the soups I did not. I would love to to try this with cooked chicken breast, as I associate chicken with creamy enchiladas. Thanks for a keeper, I know I'll be back to revisit this one. Made for Healthy Choices 2008.

      Very tasty! I added two cloves of garlic and next time would add more onion. I ended up with incomplete layers since I ran out of meat before I ran out of soups and cheese. Ended up using about 1 1/4 pounds of cheese and that was plenty of cheese for us. Made the two 8X8 pans and did freeze one. The pans were close to overflowing. Thank you for sharing this. I will definitely make it again!
