I rated this 5 stars with these changes. (some at other's suggestions):
- add 1 can diced green chiles
- add 1/2 packet of taco seasoning (may eliminate creole seasoning)
- add 1 4oz can tomato sauce to coat bottom of dish.
I used a 10oz package of tortillas and one 8oz cheese (Kraft-Mexican Cheddar) was plenty. I mixed the cheese, olives, mushrooms and chiles in a bowl (didn't use onion), dipped each tortilla in sauce filled each tortilla with cheese mixture, then spread remaining sauce on top and sprinkled the leftover cheese mixture on top of that.
I made it with the Best Spanish Rice recipe by Angie. (wich is the only one I use)Absolutely delicious! Will add to my favorites.
This recipe is easy and quick. I reccomend using taco seasoning with a little hot sauce mixed into the tomato paste and sauce mixture. Make sure that you throughly coat each tortilla with the sauce and maybe even pour a little over the top before you add the cheese. I also cooked it for less time. I hope this helps.
I omitted the mushrooms and used canned enchilada sauce instead of the tomato sauce mixture. Excellent recipe!
Yummy! Followed others' suggestions: taco seasoning, fresh sauteed mushrooms, and well over double the cheese called for. It just takes a minute to grate the cheese, and blocks of cheese are typically much better quality than bags of shredded (often cheaper as well!). When I tried to dip the tortillas they really broke up a lot, so I slathered the sauce on the inside, added the filling, rolled it up, and then poured the remaining sauce over the enchiladas, making sure not to leave any naked tortilla. This was a lot easier!
Finally! This is the third Enchilada recipe I've tried from this site and the only one that EVERYONE loved! I couldn't find the creole seasonings at my grocery store, so as another reviewer suggested, I used a pack of taco seasonings. It turned out very good. Also, I sauted fresh mushrooms myself, and I sauted the onion because I hate raw onion. Next time I'll try adding beef or chicken.
I took the advice of others, and modified this, which is why its 5 stars. I absolutely love this recipe! I used 1/2 packet taco seasoning rather than creole. I also omitted the mushrooms & olives, and replaced with 4oz diced green chiles (drained). I sauteed the onions, and mixed the cheese, onions, and chiles in a bowl before filling. Also, definitely put a thin layer of the sauce in the bottom of the dish, and pour the rest over the top. YUM!!!
This is a nice, easy recipe and cheap to make! I omitted the olives and mushrooms in hopes of trying to make a more traditional enchilada. I used low-fat cheddar cheese which worked out great! I used taco seasoning as other reviewers did, and it worked fine. After baking it isn't very "saucy" and some enchiladas even stuck to the pan. For next time I will either spray the pan or put a layer of sauce down. These will become a regular at my house - my husband loved them!
super delicious recipe! My husband and I really loved these enchiladas. We made a few adjustments to the original recipe, like using canned red enchilada sauce vs. making our own and using flour tortillas vs. corn (personal preference). It was wonderful! The mushrooms, particularly, were delectable in this dish. This recipe seems very easy to modify to your personal tastes (adding different vegetables and cheeses), and it's perfect for vegetarian Mexican fare. Thanks so much for sharing. We're adding this to our permanent recipe collection!
