This was my first attempt at making enchiladas and they were great! Super easy to make and they were a hit! I will definitely make these again. I am also guessing that you could make these ahead and freeze for a future meal. I am actually excited to eat my leftovers at work!
I needed an enchilada recipe that was TASTY, VERY SIMPLE, and different from the other enchiladas I usually make and this was exactly that. I like to serve it with rice and on a bed of shredded lettuce. It's also good with sour cream and salsa over the top.
Not sure if old el paso has a mild red enchilada sauce, but I could only find medium, so I added in a small can of tomato sauce to tone it down so my family could eat this.
The first time I made it as written, it was to spicy for the kids palates, but the adults liked it.
Both times, I let the cream cheese come to room temperature and mixed it with the enchilada sauce using a hand held blender for a more even flavor and consistency throughout the enchiladas. I knew chunks of cream cheese would not have been tolerated by the kids.... The overall flavor is good.
Love these, easy and feeds an army.
It's was pretty good also was my first time making enchiladas
Awesome! But I used half a jar of mild salsa instead of seasoning mix. Great flavor.
Did not make any changes, this was excellent!
