I honestly can’t get enough of these enchiladas. I’ve already made this twice this week and once for Dan’s mom and sister. I guess they loved them too because they took home more than half a pan for the next day. This recipe you HAVE to try!! You won’t be sorry, and this too may be in your weekly rotation.

I got my recipe from Damn Delicious and altered it a tiny bit. Ill put the link to the original below either way you can’t go wrong.
