Good but could be better, Member xdunlapx

I followed the recipe except for adding more black beans. It was very good. I would have loved it to taste more like enchiladas from a mexican restaurant though. But it's a pretty good recipe for home cooking. I was surprised it took me a long time to get the ingredients together and to make the enchiladas. For me (a cook with little experience) it took 50 mintutes to get the ingredients together and pop them in the oven. Then another 30 minutes to cook. But that's okay. I had the time to do it. I don't think I'll make this often but it's a good treat if I'm tired of chicken and veggies or hamburger and baked beans. lol
