  • “YUMMMMMY!! Very quick and easy to make, and much less messy to eat than traditional enchiladas!!”

  • “Very delicious! I made this when some of our friends came over and they had seconds:) I used fresh ground venison instead of hamburger since my hubby just got a deer:) Good with a dollop of sour cream on top!”

  • “Love Love Love this recipe.I found this recipe a couple years ago and I am so glad I did.My husband practically begs for it.I make it with chicken, add a bunch of green onion to the corn and diced chilies to the sauce.Big Yum!Thanks for posting!”

  • “Made this this afternoon and hubby loved it!I added some taco seasoning to the meat and will add a little more next time as we like it spicy.Hub wants to try corn tortillas and some refried beans in it next time also.He even wants put it over tortilla chips to make easy nachos.If only I wasn’t on a low-carb diet!I enjoyed the 2 bites I took.Thanks for the recipe”

  • “I made this for a Mexican fiesta at my house and it was a super hit. Thanks for posting this, it will definitely become a regular in this household…arrreeeba!”

  • “My family and I loved this! I changed it a little by using vegetarian ‘ground beef’ and also added black beans, and instead of using salsa from a can (so it wouldn’t be too liquidy) i just chopped up some tomato, onion, and cilantro and then added it to the layering processes. I also used corn tortillas. Additionally when i cooked the meat substitute used some ‘Mexican meat seasoning’ which added great flavor. This is a KEEPER! It was awesome for leftovers too!!”

  • “I made this last night and was soooo happy with it!My SO loved loved loved it as well.I did substitute the beef for chicken but that’s the only change I made!DELICIOUS!!!”

  • “Forget the one year old – mypicky 58 year loved it!I did add some queso quesdilla cheese to it to make it even cheesier and used the enchilada sauce recipe on the website.My 15 year old also turned up his nose, but ate it and loved it.I will make this again, and again, and again.Its a keeper.”

  • “Never mind your one-year old – my hard-to-please 17-year old liked it. She said we can have it again in about two weeks!! I gave some to my mother, who also enjoyed it. I did NOT realize that you could purchase enchilada sauce; didn’t realize it existed. Who knows, some of us in the cold North, where we build buildings from ice (NOT), one might not be able to get enchilada sauce. I did add onions; but I cannot make anything without onions. Very Good. Yolanda”

  • “We tried this and found it to be quick and tasty.We added a can of drained black beans to it and we found an enchilada sauce recipe on this website instead of using a canned one. There were no leftovers. We are definitelymaking this again.”

  • “My 1 year old loved this as well! Your comment that your child loved propted me to try it. It was good, though my floor may never be the same!”

  • “I really enjoyed the taste of this casserole.I did make a couple of substitutions – my store was out of Enchilada sauce, so I substituted Burrito starter, and I used Salsa Con Queso, a cheese and salsa mixture for the salsa.The end result was very flavorful, and filling, especially since the burrito mix had pureed pinto beans in it.The kids weren’t pleased with the corn addition, but I thought they added a nice sweet crunch to the dish.I would certainly make this again.”

  • “I made this last night for my family and they loved it! My husband is the chef of the house so he was skeptical at first but he helped himself to seconds… and picky eater loved it in spite of the corn.”
