This recipe is really delicious. My family can be very picky, and when I made it for them, they all loved it. Very easy. I improvised and used fresh bell peppers instead of out of the can.

This was my first time making enchiladas and my family thought they turned out perfect. I followed the recipe exactly and I will make this again.
