Once the pan is full, pour the sauce all over the enchiladas.
Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.

Top with picante sauce, sour cream and/or jalapenos and serve.


This tasty little recipe comes from the fine folks over at I love this guy’s videos, and hope to try out a few more of his recipes soon! (BBQ Meatloaf, maybe?)
These are quite rich, be careful! 😉
Next time i make these, I might add some spanish rice into the enchiladas.
