"This is one of my signature dishes. The sweetness of the caramelized onions really makes this dish, so don't skimp on the time to cook the onions. I always double the recipe and freeze one batch. I usually serve this with refried beans and either a Mexican Rice Pilaf or Sopa de Seca. If serving these with rice and beans, one enchilada per person is what I usually figure on. They are very rich and filling. It helps with rolling these if you heat the tortillas a little before filling them."

"This was very good--loved the taste of the green chiles enchilada sauce combined with the monterey jack cheese. And the roasted red peppers were a great addition to the filling. The canned green enchilada sauces at our grocers all contained MSG or additives that I can't eat, so I made green enchilada sauce recipe #55478 from recipezaar. Because we like spicy food, I added a 1/4 tsp cayenne to the sauce and 1/2 tsp also to the filling. We would like it even spicier, so next time (and there will be next time) I will either add jalapeno peppers the mix, increase the cayenne, or top it with hot salsa. Great recipe and tasty combination of flavors--thanks for posting this recipe."
