These are the enchiladas I made a week in advance and froze. I just popped them in the oven straight from the freezer before serving them. Unfortunately, to keep the family from snacking until they were served, I suggested a walk. But as usual, we ran into friends in the neighborhood. This part we love. I just wasn't proud of myself for letting the enchiladas crisp a little too much on the edges. They were still very good.
I have recently found some large corn-flour-mixed tortillas at Publix. I love the size. And we really like the flavor. They are our new favorite product. I'm sorry I can't seem to find them online. So consider the size of the tortillas I used when making this recipe. While it made six large enchiladas that fed us two meals, it may not work the same for you. You may not want it to.
Also, remember you can use a can of enchilada sauce instead of the tomatoes. But we really liked the tomatoes.
