    Miss Annie's Note:

    Most New Mexicans don't roll their enchiladas. This is certainly a less time consuming way of making them with the same great results. Sometimes they even add a fried egg on top of each serving. You may add additional meat, cheese or vegetables if you desire. Just remember to bake as soon as assembled because they get soggy if they sit too long. Prep time does not include making the chile sauce.

      These were very good! I used Monterrey Jack cheese. I did find the amount of onion and sauce to be excessive. I used only half the sauce and it was enough. Next time I will cut way back on the onion.
