    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This is a good basic Tex-Mex recipe that has multiple uses. The crepes make a good substitute for tortillas, they are easy to roll for enchiladas. When baked with fillings and sauces, the enchiladas taste similar to tamales. The crepes folded over a filling are a good breakfast dish. For a dessert crepe, omit the chile and herbs in the batter and serve with fruit. Note: the original recipe called for egg substitute equivalent to 4 eggs; either version works, however the egg substitute reduces the amount of fat. This recipe was adapted from the book, The Ultimate Low-Fat Mexican Cookbook by Anne Lindsay Greer.
