    AnneBear's Note:

    This is the recipe my mom always uses for enchiladas, and nothing else compares for me! This also can be prepared ahead of time, as it freezes well and can be warmed up in the oven when you need a quick meal.

      I happen to have a can of green chili sauce on hand. Also added some cumin to the ground beef as well as onions and fresh garlic. Then did same as recipe. Quite good considering I used a can sauce.

      I don't know what I did wrong, but the fresh tortillas wouldn't hold; the mixture was way too wet; and we ended up eating "enchilda sandwiches". Tasted OK, but not worth the trouble.
