Yummy is right! And hearty, too--this is a great meatless meal to serve to vegetarians and skeptical carnivores. I only used 1/2 c cheese in the filling and didn't top with more as I ran out, but I imagine they would be even yummier with more cheese (maybe cottage cheese in the filling and cheddar on top?). I got 8 enchiladas using 8 inch wheat tortillas and 1/2 c filling in each, and as I said before they were quite filling. A dollop of homemade guacamole on top really pushed them over the top, so do try that if you are able! Thanks for posting! Made for PARTY 2010.
