    What size are the tortillas
  2. gma19511 ..
    Some added garlic and cumin. How much do you add if you want to add them.

    I added a little garlic powder and cumin to the meat. But did everything else the same. My family (especially my 5 year old!) can't get enough! I've already made these twice in a week! Thanks!

    I made these for dinner tonight and we liked them a lot. I am not a fan of onions so I did not include them and they still had a great taste. Great recipe for a working mom because they were very quick and easy to make. Thanks

    Made these tonight and they were awesome! I was looking for a simple recipe since our family doesn't like a whole lot of spices, and things in our food..lol The only thing i did different is ommited the onions and used garlic and onion powder. Came out wonderful! Very easy! Thanks for the recipe!! its a keeper!

    I have actually been making this for years. It's one of my very favorite dishes and my family's favorite too! It's so good! Over time, I have made some changes, or, I should probably say variations. I prepare the meat exactly as written, but I also take Zatarain's Spanish rice mix and prepare that, then add to the beef mixture. This practically doubles your filling. I end up making 2 pans of enchiladas which you'd think would give me left overs, but it never does LOL. I use a Mexican cheese blend in place of cheddar, and I also add sliced black olives to the top of the cheese before baking it. YUM! Always served with sour cream.

    I topped the enchiladas with fresh cilantro, black olives and sour cream.

    First time I used leftover pulled pork (no BBQ sauce) instead of ground beef. Now I've changed it up over and over. This morning I'm filling with with veggie burger (hey, we just like them), eggs, a refried bean concoction (beans, Rotel, and cheddar cheese), mild green enchilada sauce, and pepper jack cheese. I cooked all the filling together, filled the tortillas, poured the remaining sauce over, put the cheese on top. Can't wait till they're done!

    This was good for a quick weeknight meal after work. I added garlic to the meat and I used corn tortillas instead of flour. I will make this again!

    I have to add my praise to this wonderful recipe. I changed just a few things, I took the suggestion of Cindytc and used 1 cup sour cream instead of ff enchilada sauce for the filling and added a can of green chilies. I also used corn torillas, lean ground turkey and reduced fat cheese. These were awesome! perfect week day meal! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with my family.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
