“My sister Shawn is famous for these enchiladas, and her husband Rob makes the killer margaritas to match. My husband and I like them with Sangria. It's the ideal entree for dinner guests because it can be completely prepared in advance. You can substitute whatever meat you have...ground chicken or turkey, steak, shredded pork, Krab, etc. as well as any creamed soups. I was even out of sour cream and substituted fat free cottage cheese which worked fine. Be creative and please share your ideas here!”
