    Very good recipe! My husband and I liked it. We ended up making 10 enchiladas to even out the meat mixture. We'll have leftovers! Yeah! - 8/19/13

    Everyone in my family LOVED this! I used green enchilada sauce instead of red just because we prefer the green. Yum, I'm having it again for dinner tonight, - 6/2/10
