Excellent! I use Sysco Chicken base to make my broth, my homemade canned salsa and half flour tortillas and half corn tortillas. There is nothing that I would substitute. The spices are just right for our family and so easy to put together. I used to layer the sauce ingredients, not any more. This is the recipe I will use. Thanks for posting!

Wow! I've never made enchiladas or tasted enchiladas that were this good! I only made half the recipe (4 pieces), and there was enough sauce for 6. I did use cumin in place or coriander and heavily seasoned the sauce and the meat mixture to better suit our tastes with my own taco blend. I also used corn tortillas because that's what we have. Light sour cream worked just fine. We will definitely have this again and maybe try it with shrimp and crab. Thanks for the terrific recipe!

This recipe is decent, added more cumin and salt of course, but there was enough sauce to cover about 15 enchiladas. I made 9 enchiladas, had one left over and put away in the fridge and threw a lot of sauce away. If I make this again, I will likely cut the recipe for the sauce in half, and use half the amount of sour cream. It was a little overwhelming. If you make 15 enchiladas and make the full amount of sauce, taste as you go with the sour cream until it suits your tastes buds. I thought a whole 16 oz. container of sour cream seemed like an awful lot but made the recipe exactly as written.
