These enchiladas (or, more like an enchilada casserole) are very tasty. I love the lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream on top. They're so cheesy (the cream cheese goes great in them!). Very easy, and very good!


These were fantastic! I had never heard of 3-oz packages of cream cheese, but fortunately Tammy clarified that 3 ounces was the correct amount. Even my fiance who's not a huge fan of cheese absolutely loved them.
