“A quick, very easy, low clean up way to make enchiladas. I adapted this from a few other recipes. We prefer flour tortillas but you can use corn. Corn does work better if they are warm, so putting them in the microwave for 30-40 seconds makes them more pliable. You can always substitute fresh cooked ground beef, turkey or chicken for the canned meat.”
