I started looking up recepies for Enchladas because I wanted something diffrent for dinner, and my family likes mexican food, with out the spice. I started to add the rice and beans to make it more filling, and add extra whole grains and proteen to the dinner. Now its one of our favorits! I actually split this in half, and cook 8 enchladas at at time and freeze the other half to make a quick and easy supper on those nights you just do not want to cook to much. Once assembled they freeze amazingly well.
