Ok, they were fast and tasted.......ok. However, I think I will spend the extra 15 minutes or so next time making really good ones. There are so many really great Enchilada recipes on "All Recipes" to waste time (and ingredients) on mediocre results.

Better not to cover with foil and not to put foil under them

These were OK. I have made better. Needs more spice.

I adapted this by using left-overs from Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Beef. I used only the beef and peppers inside the tortilla omitting the salsa. I did add it on the bottom of the casserole dish. I liked the flavor of the dressing on the tortillas but think I would prefer this made with corn tortillas.
