“This recipe belonged to my Mother-in-law, it was my husband's favorite when he was a kid. It is a little timely, however very good, and my kids like it. I've found that the red enchilada sauce I use (Old El Paso) only comes in a big can here, so if you can find a smaller can, that will be perfect. You always have more sauce than anything. Hope you enjoy this recipe, we have!!”
