    HEP MEP's Note:

    I clipped this from The Milwaukee Journal about 10 years ago. A Mexican-American woman devised it to re-create the taste of her mother's chicken enchiladas. It's a little time-consuming, but the flavor is well-worth it

      I loved this, I used only half as many tortillas though. Will be making again soon.

      This was very good. I loved the flavor. It was not too spicy. It seems like a lot of ingredients but very easy to put together.
