Notes

Rich and saucy, this south-of-the-border entree from Alicia Johnson of Hillsboro, Oregon makes a hearty meal. "Whenever I take dinner to friends who are ill, these enchiladas seem to make them feel better," says Alicia. TOH

I made this for dinner tonight -- only I used a mix of muenster & cheddar cheeses because that's what I had! It was very good. Thank you so much for posting it!
