Easy Cheesy Enchiladas

Christine Kalmbach


This recipe is from my good friend Mary Fitzgerald. We had a Mexican Fiesta at our home and she brought this dish. We LOVED it! It was so easy! I never get tired of this recipe and my family always gets excited when I tell them it's Cheese Enchilada night! I serve this with Mexican Rice and Pinto Beans!
