Excellent! I deconstructed the enchiladas and made this into a casserole. I lined the pan with white corn tortillas and topped with half the filling. Added another layer of tortillas and the second half of filling. Finished with one last layer of tortillas and topped them with the remaining picante sauce and the cheese. Put in the oven until it was warmed through and the cheese was melted. Used the recommended toppings and it made for an excellent dinner. Thanks for sharing, Kitten!
We will definitely be making these again! I used enchilada sauce instead of picante sauce and added a can of green chilies. I used 4ozs of low fat cream cheese becuase that is what I had left.
Great recipe! I added a huge jalapeno with the onions and garlic. I also threw in some chopped cilantro and rolled with WW tortillas. This makes a lot which is perfect...we have a delicious lunch for a couple days.
