These easy cheese enchiladas will be a big hit with your family! Adding the rice makes for a great dinner meal!
This is a great cheese enchiladas recipe that your kids can help make. Dividing up the cheese in even portions is a great way to practice fractions. We love enchiladas at our house and they make great leftovers. These cook up well in an 8 x 11 baking dish.
Want to change things up with these cheese enchiladas? Try out these variations:
- The first problem I had was not knowing what to do with the extra tortillas since I typically buy a package that has 10-12 tortillas. Instead of having odds and ends in my freezer until the next batch of enchiladas, I decided to simply make more. All I did was add an additional bag of cheese, a second can of sauce, and doubled the spices. We love cheese in our house so doubling the cheese was welcomed. Just use a full bag in the mixture and use the second bag to cover the top after the first 30 minutes of baking.
- Since I was already doubling the recipe, I decided to use 2- 8×8 glass dishes so I could use 2 different sauces. I make one pan with green chile and one with red. The Old El Paso enchilada sauce works great and there is a variety of red and green sauce in mild, medium, or hot.
- I’ve also substituted the cheese mixture for browned ground beef prepared with taco seasoning.
