    Sooz Cooks's Note:

    The lime juice really helps to perk up the flavor of these mild enchiladas. If you want them to be spicier you can serve them with hot sauce or chopped jalapenos on the side. Or if you can find it, you can use the Herdez brand salsa verde hot instead of mild. The recipe originated from Good Housekeeping magazine, but I have made changes to suit my family.

      This recipe is awesome! It does require a little extra time to dip each tortilla into the mixture, but it's worth it. I made this recipe as-is except I accidentally put all the cilantro in the mix and didn't have any left to sprinkle on top. I don't think it really affected the taste, but it would have made the presentation prettier to have the green cilantro on top! Great recipe!
