My ex-Mother-in-law made these yummy enchiladas and while they’re probably not true Mexican food, they are still delicious and I would still couple it with a Pacifico or Negro Modelo.  This is a great recipe for leftovers or when feeding a decent group of people.  Need to bring an entree to a party, this is easy and travels well.  Enjoy:
