    Great dish family loved it! Thanks it was very simple to make and didn’t take a lot of time.

    • I am so happy your family loved it! The simple dishes are the best, aren’t they? Thank you for coming back to comment. I really appreciate it. πŸ™‚

  2. We loved this it definitely went into the recipe book to make again. Thanks

  3. Could you use Greek Yogurt instead of Sour Cream? All I have here right now. Thanks!

    • You know what? You might be onto something! I’m always up for avoiding a trip to the grocery store, especially for one ingredient. I found a great article for you to check out on substituting Greek Yogurt for Sour Cream. It sounds like it’s a wonderful substitute in place of sour cream. It’s a bit tangier than sour cream, but a whole lot less fattening. Here’s the link for you to look at. Pay special attention to the comment section. If you end up using yogurt, please come on back and let us know how it turned out. πŸ™‚

    So simple but sooooo yummy!!!!!

  5. This is almost exactly how I make mine. Only thing I do different is Monterey Jack cheese. These are my husbands favorite meal!

    • Monterey Jack melts so nice and smooth. That would be a great cheese to go with. Any Mexican meal is my favorite. I love them all! πŸ™‚

  6. Can you freeze this dish?

  7. I have never made enchiladas. It alway thought it was too tricky.

    You make it seem easy. I will give it a go!
