A quirky twist on regular enchiladas that would suit the fans of pineapple-topped pizza very well. Flour tortillas are filled with pineapple, sour cream and Cheddar cheese, then baked in an enchilada sauce and more cheese.

I increased the sour cream to 1/2 c. I used 1 c. of Mexican cheddar cheese that I mixed into the pineapple and 1 c. of a colby, cheddar, jack mix ontop. (I was using what I had on hand not trying to change the recipe.) My can of enchilada sauce was 15 oz. and a little spicy so I added 1/2 c. pineapple juice to it and cooked it in a sauce pan to thicken the sauce. I ended up making only 4 tortillas. In the end, I think plain cheddar cheese would be too boring and I liked the kick from the Mexican cheese mix. I could also taste a hint of pineapple in the enchilada sauce. YUMMY! This was so good! I loved it and will definitely make it again!

I really like this recipe, because it was so easy, and they came out delicious. I used 9 6-inch corn tortillas instead of flour, and kept everything else the same. I baked them in three glass Pyrex dishes, and it seemed as though there wasn't enough sauce, but I actually liked them that way. I think that if they were swimming in sauce, I wouldn't have tasted the pineapple as much. I'll definitely be making them again, and I don't think I'll change anything.

We have made Mexican food our tradition for Christmas and have made these every year for the last 4 years as part of our Christmas meal. I now substitute tomato sauce instead of the enchilada sauce as we haven't found one we like. I add a 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper and 1/4 cup chopped red marachino cherries to make them festive. These are wonderful and this posting is long past due! Thank you for sharing this recipe.
