Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! Fabulous! I made these changes; I sautéed the peppers on the skillet until they were softened before adding the ground beef. I added taco seasoning and fresh cilantro to the mixture as well. I used enchilada sauce on top of the enchiladas, as well as a little salsa underneath and on top. After baking, I added more fresh cilantro with the cheese on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our family loves this recipe! Our family loves this recipe! I always use flour tortillas instead of the corn. Also, use a variety of peppers. I have made this with venison burger (added seasonings) and chicken and it's wonderful with both. I do like the idea of one posters advice of adding enchilada sauce. Will try that next time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I thought this was ok. I thought this was ok. Something different. My husband seemed to like it very much. As for me I prefer traditional enchilada sauce. But overall taste was good. I did add a little bit of taco seasoning and granulated garlic, onions and garlic, and probably 2x the amount of veggies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was soo good and really easy! This was soo good and really easy! It's great for a weeknight meal that seems like you cooked it forever! The only thing that bothered me was that the corn tortillas broke even though I heated them. It was still good and everyone enjoyed them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good and extremely easy to make! Very good and extremely easy to make! Will definitely make again. After heating my tortillas, I dipped them in light zesty italian dressing and then stuffed them! Adds more flavor to the overall dish and helps the tortillas from not cracking!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this recipe several times, and I love it! I've made this recipe several times, and I love it! I prefer to use flour tortillas, because the corn ones tend to fall apart when I'm rolling them, and I usually omit the italian dressing.
