Expert Tips

Enchiladas are a Mexican casserole of meat or cheese-filled tortillas baked in tomato sauce. Salsa, lettuce and extra cheese are the traditional accompaniments.

Enchilada sauce is a smooth tomato sauce that can range from mild to very spicy. Use your favorite sauce.

To substitute for the Mexican cheese blend, use 1 cup each of shredded Monterey Jack and mild Cheddar cheese.
