  1. I didn’t fry at all the tortillas, that would be adding up to much oil for us. I simply wrapped up and follow the whole process. I just put a lil of sauce in the pan before placing the ENCHILADAS, therefore it stocked to it in one corner.... besides that..... IT was AWESOME....! MY husband loved it. & NEXT time ... I will include rice in it too.

  2. My family loves this recipe!! It's so easy and delicious!! I like to use cheese sauce instead of the enchilada sauce to make a chili con queso topping. So good!
  3. Basically a very good and easy recipe -- quick and tasty!
  4. I loved not having to grate the cheese! (I did grate some over the top for about the last 15 minutes of cooking.) These are perfect with some homemade pinto beans on the side. I wrapped the tortillas in paper towels and nuked them for a minute. I sometimes use pepper Jack Cheese for a bit more zing.
  5. I made these tonight, but did something a little different, I greased the pan added the sauce on bottom of pan and then added the ones chili to the enchiladas sauce but warmed the sauce up and poured the remaining over the enchiladas was wonder just added more spice to sauce as well


  1. Instead of cheddar cheese, I used a Mexican 4-cheese blend (shredded) from Costco, and I also added crumbled queso fresco on top of the other cheese. I coated each tortilla with enchilada sauce, as well as pouring it over them AFTER placing them in casseroles and putting on the cheeses.
  2. I spray the pan with cooking spray, then spread about 1/2 cup sauce in the pan before putting the enchiladas in it. It keeps the tortillas moister, and they're much easier to serve.
  3. Instead of using oil to get the tortillas soft, I put a small amount of water in a frying pan, heat the water and just soak them for a few seconds, until the tortilla is soft.
