  • Good
    This makes a ton of casserole. Way more than 4 servings. I used El Pato enchilada sauce from the Mexican grocery store. All natural and I think gluten-free. I will add more spices next time. Good, hardy recipe. - 3/8/11

  • I "make" my own spice mix for Mexican dishes. To dishes I will had a couple teaspoons ground cumin, a teaspoon ground turmeric, and enough ground chilli to heat it to our liking. - 1/24/10

  • Where do you get the GF Enchilada sauce? I have not found any Enchilada sauce to be gluten free and I've looked everywhere. I ended up being "glutened" as we Celiacs say due to Enchilada sauce! Any hints would be helpful. Thanks! - 10/11/09
