Max's Homemade Enchiladas

Gail Welch


This recipe came from my brother- in-law over 30 years ago. They are so easy to make that I even taught my husband how to make them. We used to make them together. Since he has retired he now flys solo and gets rave reviews! Note: I like to use one can of Wolf and one can of Hormel Chili.
