Thanks for posting this yummy recipe. I used 1 small red bell pepper. I omitted the serrano peppers. I didn't have enough cream cheese, so I substituted plain yogurt. For the enchilada sauce, I used recipe#222519. At the end I put the oven to broil to broil the cheese. Very good. Even my son loved this. Thanks KPD :) Made for Think Pink event
Our first time making enchiladas and it couldn't have been easier. They tasted great right out of the oven and better the next day. I served the bell pepper and onion as an add on since DS can be picky about that (and he's the one that really wanted to make these). I only used 3 oz of cream cheese since that is the current size of the small package.

These were very tasty! I did not have any serrano or jalapeno peppers so I used a small can of diced green chiles instead. I also did not have any enchilada sauce so I took the same amount of salsa and pureed it in the blender to make a sauce. Everyone in the family loved them. Will be making this again. Oh, and I used both corn and flour tortillas, everyone preferred the flour ones. Great recipe!
