    my husband and 2 year old really enjoyed this. I did do it a little different from the recipe. my husband hates peppers so I used zucchinni instead. also I didnt have 2 jars of enchilada sauce so I used 1 jar and marinara sauce. I had lots of extra filling that I couldnt squeeze into the tortillas so I topped them with the remaining toppings before adding the cheese on top.

    Easy enough to make and very flavorful! I accidentally got a red sauce that was a bit too spicy, but the whole meal made up for that. Add sour cream and avocado!

    Substituted roasted chicken for ground beef and mixed the enchilada sauce with cheese for a queso consistency and was delicious!!!

    Added 2 tsp of garlic and it was very flavorful. A bit soggy so I think I'll use a bit less enchilada sauce in the pan and on top next time but overall very good and we all liked it! My 1 year old even approved!

    These were super quick to make, given that your throwing the tortillas in microwave. This is just a personal preference I guess to slightly fry the tortillas prior to quick dipping in enchilada sauce before adding in whatever filling meat or meatless. This prevents the enchilada in my opinion fromb becoming to soggy and slightly dry. But of coarse addition of frying calls for added unhealthy version..But if your trying for quickness and dont mind all that then.. these were great im this regard.

    Required me to have Gordan Ramsy show me how to chop a pepper/onion/jalapeño on YouTube but this recipe turned out delicious. Approved by more than myself and my dog

    Would make it again, but kick up the spice. I also had to make my own enchilada sauce and had to sub some ingredients. I also used soft tortillas so it was very mushy.

    Easy and delicious! I didn’t add jalapeños or garlic, but I did add a couple of extra spices and it turned out fantastic! I am a very beginner cook, but this recipe was so easy to follow and my husband loved it

    Used only 1 can of enchilada sauce- used Hatch brand to make them gluten free. The kids rated it 5 stars. 🌟 Thats a win!
