I like all Tex-Mex food and especially enjoy queso, I'll have to admit my husband prefers red enchilada sauce to this receipe, but I love it and good for a change.

Quick and Easy! I made this for freezer tag and you can make this recipe OAMC by making the enchiladas ahead of time and freezing them. Defrost in microwave or overnight in fridge and then make the sauce to go on top. I used recipe#26539 for the picante sauce and it worked very well.
