This was just ok. I liked the filling a lot & the sauce had a nice consistency but the sauce was very bland. I would recommend dipping the tortillas in the sauce before filling so the sauce coats the tortilla more. I may make again but will add other spices to the sauce.

These were awesome. I followed the recipe mostly as is. I used blue corn tortillas which made it nice and colorful. We like our food really spicy so I added about a tsp. of habanero hot sauce to the enchilada sauce.
