“This is the first recipe I've ever posted! The idea was developed after tweaking several other enchilada recipes and using what I had in the pantry. The end result was pretty spectacular if I do say so myself! If you wish, you can add toppings to your cooked enchiladas such as sour cream or salsa.”
