My 4 kids LOVE this dish and there is plenty for seconds!! It is super easy and cheap for all the ingredients. Definitely a family fav!


We love this dish in our house! It is delicious, but we do add some extras. I like to add corn, black beans and some diced jalapenos to the cheese mixture. It adds some texture and taste to the casserole. Very good.


I made two pans-chicken ground turkey with wheat tortillas. It was very simple to make and very delicious. I individually seasoned and cooked meats. The enchilada sauce was seasoned to taste before adding to dish. I will cook again.


If you like a pan full of complete mush, this is your recipe. Will not make again. Didn't taste bad, but it looked nothing like the picture, no distinct layers. I uncovered it for the last 10-15 minutes of baking and it still didn't help.


I would not make this again! It didn't taste right and the texture was just awful! Don't waste your time!


This turned out amazing. The kids loved it and have asked me to make it again this week! We like things a bit spicier than the original recipe so tonight I will make it with medium heat enchilada sauce instead of mild.


The whole family liked this! I was surprised how well it turned out. I used 8 oz. vegetarian beef for chicken and more green chiles. All the flavors blended mildly and smooth.
