A change from chicken enchiladas. Be a maniac! Adjust the "maniac" ingredients to whatever you like(that's why it's called maniac); add the full cup of sour cream for creamier filling. Adults and kids love this!

*Made for ZWT III* Delicious! These enchiladas go together very quickly and easily and have lots of flavor. I used the entire 1 cup of sour cream and the filling was perfect. I made these as written except that I changed the assembly a little. I added more meat mixture (approx. 1/4 cup) in each enchilada. I spread any remaining meat over the entire top of the enchiladas. I then spread 2 cups of a "medium" salsa over the meat mixture and covered the entire top with a 4-cheese Mexican cheese blend. I baked them in a 9x13" dish and ended up with 8 large enchiladas. I served these topped with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and sliced green onions. My family loved these and gave them 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this quick, easy, and delicious recipe...it is definitely a keeper!
