“This is one of my favourite recipes. My friends ask me to make this for them and I have been asked for the recipe many times. I have never tried a restaurant Enchilada that I have liked as much as this recipe, so I have stopped ordering them when I go out. When I get the craving I just make up a batch. They freeze well too.”
