This is a recipe that my daughter shared with me. I always get her to prepare these enchiladas when she visits. While my daughter was pregnant, she craved these tasty enchiladas and prepared them at least once a week. Her family was getting tired of the same dish every week; but after the baby was born, her family was soon requesting these wonderful enchiladas! I like to add chopped fresh cilantro to the filling. Not only are they great tasting, but they are ridiculously easy to make. These enchiladas are the BOMB!
