Wow, for something out of a box and a few cans, this is definitely restaurant quality food! I wish I had the olives for the topping, and next time I would use just green onions only. It's wonderful topped with sour cream, and Buddha would like some guacamole next time too. (There will be a next time). This really does make 6 servings. Oh, I and I added everything prior to baking, (no 5 min b4, etc.). Worked great! Thanks for posting a keeper recipe! :)

We really enjoyed these very quick and easy enchiladas. Who would have thought to use taquitos in place of the time consuming step of filling and rolling traditional enchiladas? Brilliant!! We evidently don't have Jose Ole brand taquitos where I live, so I had to use what I could find. I made the recipe as written using chicken taquitos (they didn't have the cheese in them), and "zesty salsa" flavored refried beans. Next time I make these, I think I will try using green enchilada sauce as the red sauce seemed to overpower the light flavor of the chicken. I think the red sauce would be better suited to the stronger flavored beef taquitos. These reheat well, tasting even better the next day. Thank you for posting this wonderful, time saving is definitely a keeper!

great idea! i used the chicken and cheese flour taquitos, black beans instead of refried, jazzed up the enchy sauce with garlic powder and cayenne, added diced serrano peppers and garlic to the onion mixture, and omitted the olives. very fast, easy and tasty recipe. it went over well with dh. he really loved it! served with spanish rice. thanks, lazyme!!
