  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbly, about 20 minutes.

I made this exactly as stated. Here are my problems with it. Not enough flavor. Need more seasoning of some sort. Wrong kind of cheese for me, I like cheese in Enchiladas that is melted & very runny. The cheddar doesn't melt good enough. The processed cheese: I took it to mean Velveeta. Here is what I would do if I made this again. I would put the Velveeta on the inside of them & put the cheddar on the outside of them. I did sprinkle a little on after I got out of oven, because the Velveeta had kinda dried in place & didn't look good. I would also add some cayenne & jalapenos for more flavor. I would cook it longer also (covered with a lid to hold the moisture). But, it was just OK for me.


I had spent the day making a pork green chili in the crockpot and when I came across this recipe, decided to try it with my homemade chili for a quick and easy dinner. I used what I had on hand, so I substituted flour tortillas for the corn, I had a partial jar of a medium queso cheese dip that I needed to use up, so I used it instead of the processed cheese and I skipped the onion completely as it was in my homemade chili. I warmed the flour tortillas in the micro, filled them with cheddar cheese, rolled as the recipe states and topped w/ the chili cheese sauce. Baked as directed. My husband and I both thought this was very good. I topped the enchiladas with sour cream and a medium salsa. I'll definitely make this again, but will be sure to have corn tortillas on hand when I do as I think they would lend a more authentic mexican flavor to the dish.
