  1. We loved it. I made my own enchilada sauce, following exactly besides that.<br/><br/>Little bit of filling left made excellent bean dip.
  2. Excellent dish! Very flavorful and was extremely well received by all at a recent potluck. Will definitely make this again.
  3. We loved these enchiladas! I used two cans of pinto beans because we dont care for black beans. Only made 8 enchiladas instead of ten and baked them in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Topped with sour cream and rickoholic's Recipe #217809, this will definitely be a family favorite!
  4. This was tasty and liked by my picky son! Of course DH missed the meat but said they tasted good. Next time I would like to try the green enchilada sauce. Thank you for this great recipe!
  5. Great! Forgot to rate it 5 Stars! Recipe worked out for the exact amount of every ingredient. I may have snuck in a few more ounces of cheese, but we love cheese and loved the easy recipe. I served the enchiladas with cillantro rice.
