    the flavor was good, but my tortillas were not pliable and ugly. needs more than 2 cups of cheese

    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

    These were super fun and easy to make! One thing I did was add a splash of Valentina hot sauce to the beef mix and a little extra garlic! My partner and I 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!

    only had one can of enchilada sauce but other than needing more sauce it was quite tasty!

    Full of flavor left the enchilada sauce out of the filling perfect amount of heat with it in the bottom of the dish and on top will make this over and over again

    It was okay. Maybe I didn’t make it right but the tortilla was a big soggy.
