    SUPER good! A number of subs: red onion for the yellow only 1 jalepeno instead of 2 (for Dad, ugh) a blend of beans, instead of just black I added 4 cloves of garlic to roast in the veggies and Manchego cheese instead of Mexican. Would def make this again!!!

    So much flavor in this all in one dish. I substituted small yellow and red peppers for the poblano and while the vegetables cooked in the oven I cooked one pound of ground turkey seasoned with cumin to mix with the vegetables after their initial roasting. This took a little longer than planned to prepare so next time will make this on a weekend.

    I added a pound of hamburger and used the green enchilada sauce as someone else recommended. I should have added some olives and will the next time I make it. It really was a nice change and everyone loved it.

    It was pretty good with a few changes. I added more sweet peppers since I didn’t have the poblanos. I thinly sliced 2 jalapeños for some heat as well. And I added 2 cups of salsa verde to the top layer, because it seemed a little dry for a casserole. And I probably used more cheese than called for. All in all it was good.

    This recipe is incredibly easy and delicious but healthy as well. Used Trader Joe’s cubed butternut squash to save time and substituted canned diced green chilis for poblano and jalapeno peppers. Followed advice to toast corn tortillas under broiler and they came out perfect! My family said these enchiladas were superior to our favorite Mexican restaurant. My teenage grandson wants me to make them every week!

    It turned out great and wow it was heavy.. Instead of the tortillas I used wheat chapatis ( Indian bread) and replaced the butternut squash with leftover pumpkin from Halloween.

    Turned out great ! Love the flavors and so easy to put together :) I added some shredded rotisserie chicken. I saw a comment about putting tortilla on the top for some crunch . I forgot my middle layer of tortillas so I cut up it up into slices or it onto of the cheese 🧀! Nice crunch , just make sure you keep an eye on them once they are as crispy as you like . Cover with foil so they don’t burn 🙂 Great recipe so flavorful . Thank you

    Outstanding Vegetarian entree. I forgot to include the last layer of vegetable mix which caused the tortillas to be crunchy which was a pleasant texture addition. Other layers had plenty of vegetables to cover my error! It will be a part of my regular menu rotation and I will probably exclude the last layer of vegetables increasing them in the other 2 layers to get the crunch!

    Very good. Made it with shredded chicken and no spinach. Did 2 layers instead of 3 so fewer tortillas. Garnished with avocado, cilantro and sour cream.

    It was pretty good. The butternut squash actually went pretty well in it.

    Forgot the spinach and wish I had the green, but still super good. Added mushrooms because I had them already. Very yummy.

    It’s baking in the oven now and it smells great! I forgot the beans but I think it’ll still be tasty

    Very good weeknight meal. Will serve to vegetarian friends. Flavors were good. I used a green chili salsa and topped w a red taco sauce to add a mild spice. I also used a low fat Mexican cheese blend and a pepper jack shredded cheese. I also used avocado oil for more omegas.
