    Way too much onion. Next time I'll use 1 small.

    Very easy and good recipe. As other reviewers commented, I too doubled the sauce, so I had a bit extra, and used more cheese. I really enjoy enchilada recipes that do not used canned sauce. Thanks for the post!

    Very good recipe! I do think some diced green chilis would take it over the top but the other 2 here were very happy with it as is. I made an extra 1/2 cup of sauce in view of the comments and that provided plenty of moisture in my opinion. I also put closer to 1 cup of cheese on top. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PRMR.
