    Betty K. Rocker's Note:

    This is the way cheese enchiladas should taste! Not too spicy, with a savory meat sauce on top. We top ours with sour cream and cilantro.

      Pros: Loved the chili added as a topping and that the meat didn't overpower the other ingredients. We loved the enchilada sauce but thought the cumin was a bit too strong. I will cut it down to 1 tablespoon next time. Cons: The recipe doesn't state the size of the corn tortillas. I wanted to stay true to the recipe and didn't sub the corn for larger flour ones, which I knew would have worked better. The corn tortillas I purchased where small in diameter and made rolling individual enchiladas pretty impossible. My modifications: I kept the chili and sauce ingredients the same. I used an 18 pack of corn tortillas and doubled the cheese, using cheddar instead of American. In a 9 x 13 pan, I put two ladles of sauce on the bottom. Topped the sauce with a layer of 6 tortillas and half the cheese. Another ladle of sauce on top of the cheese. Repeated with another layer of tortillas, cheese and sauce. Topped with a final layer of tortillas, the rest of the sauce and the final cup of cheese. Baked as instructed and served with pico de gallo and sour cream. Thanks for sharing! ***Made for Fall PAC 2012***

      I made these for dinner tonight. After reading the other review I only used 1 tbs cumin in the sauce and that was just right. And it makes a lot of sauce! There would have been plenty to cover 12 enchiladas instead of 8. I used sharp cheddar and queso fresco. Nice combination of flavors. Served them with southwestern rice & beans.
