Notes

Why are my enchiladas soggy?
One big thing people do not like, are soggy enchiladas. With this recipe there is really not a lot of sauce that will make these soggy. Traditional enchiladas will be covered in Enchilada Sauce, thus possibly becoming soggy in baking. If you are worried this recipe or any enchilada recipe may become soggy, you can fry your tortillas for a few seconds before filling and rolling. Just pop them on a skillet with a little oil for a few seconds on each side. If using corn tortillas the pre-cooking method is HIGHLY recommended for the tortillas. A warmer corn tortilla will be easier to roll as well.
  • Tip: Traditionally, enchiladas are made with corn tortillas, but I used ranch as I was making this with my kids in mind. You can use either for this recipe.
