These were very good! I used 1.3lbs ground sirloin, no peppers, flour tacos and a can (12oz) of red enchilada sauce over the top. A nice change for ground beef from hamburgers and meatloaf! UPDATE: Started adding salsa to the meat for extra flavor.

This was a crowd pleaser for all of the family, even my picky eaters. I used mild store-bought picante sauce, but I think next time I will use something with a little more flavor. I was skeptical about using turkey, but it was fantastic! Texture turned out great. I added fresh cilantro to top with as well and that added a ton of flavor! This is a great basic recipe that I will definitely make again and again and add to over time.

I subbed a few things like fajita seasoning for taco seasoning, and added 3 tbs. salsa to the meat mixture, and I topped with a jarred enchilada sauce before putting in the oven. Other than that, I stayed pretty true to the given recipe and we really loved it. My first enchiladas and it's going into my regular rotation! Thanks for the recipe!

Very good! I wanted to introduce my son to enchiladas (per his request), but I wanted something that the flavors would be familiar to him. He LOVES tacos, so I knew that this would be perfect, and it was. I did use a bit less of the red peppers b/c 1-1/2 cups seemed like a lot to me. I rolled the taco mixture into the tortillas earlier in the day, and refrigersted them until I was ready to finish and bake them. I topped them w/ all the topping, loosley covered it w/ foil and baked. I also added some green onion to the top, which was nice. My little guy thought these were great, and so did we. I will def make these again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

This was any easy recipe to make and quick as well. My husband enjoyed it very much and it even reheated well for lunch the next day. I did add mozzarella and extra cheddar in the finally steps, simply because I like cheese. I will be making this regularly.

Taste overall was delightful, but the meat mixture was dry. Will most definitely make again but with a few tweets. I used 1 1/2 lbs meat and yielded 16 enchiladas. Thx for sharing.
