    This recipe was so easy to put together and tasted delicious. My husband boiled down and pureed dried chiles from New Mexico, so we didn't actually follow the sauce recipe. I would make this again (probably next summer, when the chiles come into season) and share with friends!

    Instead of making the sauce, we used store bought salsa verde and added a can of green chiles to the layers. It is a family favorite. So easy to make and delicious. We alternate it with tacos now on our weekly Mexi-night!

    This tasted very good, we made it as the recipe reads (the sauce too). We swerved with a garden salad. I wouldn't mind it being a bit spicer, however I would eat it this way too.

    This is super easy and yummy! I used Trader Joe's bottled enchilada sauce to save time. It's a simple but tasty dish. I will make this again. I also used reduced fat Mexican cheese blend on the top because it's what I had on hand, I'm sure the cheddar would be equally good. My daughter said she'd like chicken in it next time.

    How could anything so easy be so good? I didn't change anything except to add a bit more cheese on top and to cook it five more minutes than what's indicated here. I might add sliced black olives next time. Served with the Ensalada Noche Buena and some zucchini slices roasted along with the enchilada dish.

    Made as directed. Made sauce with 5 tbsp pre-ground new mexico chiles (because my store had them available). Sauce was a lot of work, and didn't have a very good taste. The enchilada recipe itself was quite good, but would definitely do what other reviewers did and use a different sauce. Felt the serving sizes were too small - feel that a full serving would equal twice what the recipe said - even with that the calories are still very low.
