  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix cream cheese with 2 cups salsa and 2 chopped green onions in a bowl until thoroughly combined; lightly stir 2 cups shredded Cheddar and 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese into cream cheese mixture.

Place rolled tortillas into a 9x13-inch baking dish.

These were so good! I made them with and without refried beans added and made my own salsa. For my cheddar I used applewood smoked cheddar inside and on top, and the flavor it added was amazing. I highly recommend using a smoked cheese with it. After baking I broiled the enchiladas for a couple of minutes to lightly brown the top. So yummy, and very easy to prep. Served with spanish rice and paired it with "A big honkin' margarita" from this site. great mexican dinner night!! Can't wait to make these again. Thanks bean machine!

I used medium salsa and sharp Cheddar; the recipe did not specify which. otherwise made as directed. This did not go over well for us, not sure exactly what is needed; maybe some chopped peppers. Thanks for sharing.

I changed things a little to fit what I had on hand. I only had white onion and had some echilada sauce that needed used up, so I mixed that with the salsa and topped the enchiladas with it. I had the burrito sized tortillas that were jalapeno flavored (the green looked kind of gross, but tasted good. I topped mine with cucumber salsa.

My family absolutely loves this. I have to make it at least once a month! Friends show up when they know I'm making it. I use corn tortillas instead and pour enchilada sauce on top instead of more salsa. Great flavor!!!

These wee pretty good! I used the enchilada sauce I had on hand instead of the salsa, and used minced red onions as well as the green. But everyone was happy with them.
