I dont know where my step-mom came up with thsi recipe, but I grew up on it, and it is a favorite when the kids come to visit. I know it sounds strange to add onion and brown gravy to the canned enchilada sauce, but it so works, I promise. It sure makes that canned stuff taste a whole lot better! Just try it, you will see! I also have made these with refried beans and ground beef seasoned with taco mix. The fav is the cheese ones around here.

    if I am having company over, I double this and put it in a 13x9 pan. I also have varied this adding some hamburger seasoned with taco seasoning mix and a can of green chilis and cheese, or refried beans and cheese. Another time I used a rottiserie chicken and shredded it with some cheese for teh filling. The plain cheese ones are the favorite though.
