My friend Charlotte (thanks C!!) gave this to me...it is SO easy and just delicious! She likes corn tortillas, I like flour, and it tastes great with both...whatever your preference!

WONDERFUL! I followed the recipe exactly and these were so good! My 9-year-old son was going on and on about it and he never does that! It was a hit with the whole family. Can't wait to make this again--thanks for such a great recipe! :o)

So good! I only had one can of sauce so I added some corn and diced tomatoes to the innards and it turned out awesome! I will be making this again.

We enjoyed this recipe! We used olives, fresh garlic, flour tortillas, and green enchilada sauce. This recipe has a lot of ingredients but the prep is easy and quick.
