With a new school year in full swing, the change of season approaching, and this funky Sonoma County weather, these enchiladas make the perfect dinner.
Not a fan of cooking at dinner time, when the kids are grumpy and needy? Not enough time after work to do the prep? Make them ahead of time! These can sit, ready to bake, for a full day in the refrigerator. Or make a double batch and freeze for later.
The recipe can easily be customized to your family’s tastes and needs. All of the seasonings are optional and amounts can be adjusted. The cheese can be left out to make these dairy free. Any tortillas will work. Enjoy!
