“I combined my love for cottage cheese and cheese, basing this easy recipe on several cottage cheese enchilada recipes found on the web. (The big difference in this particular case being that I cut out several unnecessary ingredients.) The first time I prepared these enchiladas was for the sole purpose of using up an excess amount of cheese in the frig: cottage cheese, cheddar and mizithra. So, don't worry if you don't have mizithra on hand. Top with the enchilada sauce used in my great-grandmother's recipe: Molly's Cheese Enchiladas or any good tomatillo salsa and garnish, if you wish, with a dollop of: Guacamole Muy Facil or sour cream!”
