I learned this recipe from my Aunt Paula while at a family reunion in Siesta Key, Florida. For me, it is the ultimate party recipe because it will please all your friends: the health nut, the raw foodie, the vegetarian, the vegan, the protein lover, the carb hater, the carb craver…even the long distance runner.
Before our 4 kids started spending their days at school, I use to do a lot of volunteer work with our local mom/preschool playgroups. Many of these groups would have moms cook freezer meals for members who were having babies to help with the hectic first few newborn weeks. I use to use this enchilada recipe or its variations for this purpose all the time. I would cook up three trays of enchiladas, one would be for our dinner, one to stuff our freezer, and one to help stuff the freezer of a new mom from the group. They were always a huge hit. I have since tweaked the recipe a bit to make it healthier.
