    My husband bought flour tortillas rather than corn tortillas. I’m glad he made that mistake, because I dislike enchiladas. In addition, I put lettuce, tomatoes, & extra enchilada sauce on top of the burrito. They would have been great without the toppings, but I very much prefer them. It’s definitely a do over, and it was so SOOOO tasty!!! 😋😋😋😋

    I made with the enchilada sauce from the recipe instead of using store bought. I think that made a huge difference since it wasn't tomato based. They were delicious! My husband said they tasted like they were from a restaurant, which is high praise from someone from Texas. I would recommend and definitely will make again!

    They were good ... we even threw in cheese when rolling the corn tortillas (father has made enchiladas before but it was years ago, but he remembers that corn tortillas work best) to help keep them together this is how what it looked like ... definitely recommend many others to make this if they enjoy Mexican food

    It was a good one for us! The only thing I did different was lay the tortillas out flat, put the filling in, and tortilla on top. Instead of rolling each one. Also skipped the green chilies.

    The beef enchiladas were great! I did add one pack of taco season and omitted the onions. They turned out delicious.

    I stuck to the recipe and everyone in the family ate it up. I can't believe I was even able to slip the black beans by the kids. Also was able to whip this up on a late evening getting home from work. Next time I may spice it up a bit more with a little garlic and other spices, but definitely would do it again.

    These turned out amazing! Red sauce was tasty and I added more veggies like red pepper and sweet potato and I puréed the kidney beans and spread them on the tortilla shell and I followed the rest. Wow. So good!

    Pretty good! I used fresh jalapeños instead of canned green chilies. It tastes amazing! My boyfriend is a big fan of Mexican food, and this is always a winning dinner

    These were so good and easy to make. I did omit the black beans because no one in my family likes them. These were better then the ones they serve at the local Mexican Restaurant.

    Great! The red enchilada sauce is much much better than store bought. Did not modify except put a tsp of sugar in sauce yes definitely will make it again
