This recipe is quite delicious and since we are partial to any type of Latin American food, it was very popular. These enchiladas are quite simple to make; you can even make the filling ahead of time, as well as the sauce. So when dinner comes around all you have to do is warm the tortillas, stuff and roll them and slather them in sauce. In the oven and voila! Dinner is served.
