Egg Enchiladas

"These are scrambled eggs with a Mexican twist that can be served any time of the day. They don't require baking time however; they are slipped under the broiler to melt the cheese. Sometimes I heat the tortillas briefly in the microwave before dipping in the sauce to keep them from cracking when rolling them up. Recipe is from Sunset Mexican Cook Book."

    Easy and delicious! I used olive oil, skim milk, butter, a 4 cheese Mexican-style blend, and omitted the salt. We loved the results. Thanks for sharing!

    Really good and quick to put together! Made these for Sunday brunch and used 8 corn tortillas. I never have good results softening tortillas in sauce, so next time I'll soften in hot oil before dipping in sauce. The sauce is yummy and goes well with the eggs, tomatoey and not too spicy. Would also be nice with additional chili powder. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
