    Absolutely DELICIOUS. I found this recipe in a book called, '30-Minute Recipes From Around the World. It is actually tweaked a bit here the way I love it.

      This was awesome! I made it exactly like the recipe said and it was very moist. The only thing I would change is to cook it a bit longer than 15 minutes. It was a little bit cooler that I would have liked. Otherwise, it was excellent!!!

      This was one of my selections for PAC 2008. I used the medium size tortillas and it made up 9 over stuffed enchiladas. These are good, but they were just a little dry. If I make again I will mix up more sauce, maybe 3 cups of broth and then increase the flour and butter.
