      This made a relatively quick and easy dinner last night and we will be having leftovers for lunch today. Personally I don't see how I could possibly get all the cheese mixture into 12 tortillas. I did layer this, cutting the tortillas in fourths. I looked at all the cheese mixture and added in a couple of roasted and diced green chili for extra flavor. I used my homemade enchilada sauce which I warmed first. There was a layer of sauce, tortillas, cheese mixture, sauce times 2. These did require a little more sauce than called for. It cut well even straight from the oven.

      I made the layered version since it's a little eaisier and made it w/o chicken. It came out lacking in flavor so I topped it with with some Green Taco Sauce which helped. Next time I'll change it more to my specific tastes like adding olives and something with a little spice to it. But I will certainly be making it again.
