A family recipe created by my favorite aunt and tweaked a bit by me. I have never made this for anyone that didn't want the recipe. I use the powder Enchilada Sauce Mix, but you can use the canned sauce, if you prefer. The mix has a smoother flavor. This recipe can be easily doubled and frozen. Enjoy....
