"Enchiladas with a unique garlic flair, unlike any other enchilada I have ever tasted. The house smells WONDERFUL when these are baking. Although they do take some time to prepare, the work is definitely worth the reward! The ingredients are mostly things that you probably already have stocked in the cupboard. (Cook time includes stovetop and baking times)"

"My family loved these, and thought the sauce was really good. They're easy to put together, too. I tried veggie crumbles instead of beef, and that works just as well."
"This was the first recipe I added to my cookbook well over a year ago... I cannot believe I waited so long to make them! We loved them and they were even more yummy as leftovers. I took the advice of others and made the sauce that morning and refrigerated it until that evening so the spices could combine. My husband was actually craving them again a week or two later - that NEVER happens with things I cook for him! Thanks Manda."
"My Dad makes really tasty enchiladas, but they take all day to make. We gave this recipe a taste and they were delicious. My Dad's are still my favorite, but these come in a close 2nd. The only thing I added was some green onions on top before baking, it was so tasty. I would definitely add a touch of sour cream too! Thanks for posting!"
"I made these for dinner last week and they were delicious!!! My 4 and 2 year olds gobbled them right up! And, it makes a lot too! My family of 4 ate on them for dinner for three days! I made these exactly according to the recipe except instead of flour tortillas I used corn tortillas. We enjoyed these very much and I will definately make again!!!"
"These are very rich and delicious! I'm thrilled that I was able to make enchiladas here in Japan. All the ingredients were easy to find except the tortillas, but I finally found a package of a dozen frozen 6.5 inch flour tortillas and used them all. Thank you very much for this recipe. "
"I used to make this recipe a lot. Due to the high calorie/fat content I do not make it anymore, but I have fond memories of many good meals and leftovers. "
"Very good recipe. Love the chili powder kick. I followed this recipe to make some turkey enchiladas and brought them to a picnic in the park. Every one loved these so much! Will definitely make them again."
"Excellent. The sauce is good. I made the sauce one day then put them together the next which saved time. I have used canned sauce and it just is not as good as these. Delicious and worth the effort."
"These are fantastic! Everyone in my family loved them!"
"Found this recipe years ago and make it about once a month for my family of 6. Have also made it for Pot lucks and family gatherings...Everyone loves it!"
"Great enchiladas. I did add black beans and salsa verde that I had open but these were great.
Used hardly any cheese but may add more next time. I made half the filling but all of the sauce so that I can do it quicker next time."
"Great recipe, we added some rice to stretch the meat filling. great edition!! we used home made wheat flour tortillas...will make again!"
"my family really enjoyed this.However I think my chili powder was way too hot .It was still devoured and I will make this again but use a milder chili powder!!! thank you for recipe!"
"These are excellent, especially the sauce. Got this recipe from Taste of Home a few years back and my family loves them."
"These are really good. I made them last night for our dinner and we enjoyed them very much. We especially liked the sauce. No more canned for us. Thankyou for sharing this yummy recipe with us."
"Delicious! I used lean ground turkey and my family loved it."
"Made these for the first time with leftovers from 'Pete's own southwest roast'...never have tasted a better enchilada sauce. So easy and so good. It's a keeper for sure. Thank for sharing!!!"
"These taste just like homemade using a can sauce. If you are ever out of your regular sauce, you will be very pleased with this recipe. I am still looking for a "restaurant style" beef enchilada recipe. The kind you get in those little Mexican restaurants in Texas!!"
"These really did make the house smell amazing! We used corn tortillas and ground turkey, but besides that we followed the recipe and they were sooo good! I've always just bought the canned enchilada sauce and this was way better!"
