Daily Inspiration

We enjoyed these enchiladas very much and especially the sauce. I was concerned that the sauce wouldn't be flavorful enough, but it was. I don't like the store-bought sauce as it's too bitter for me -- so this will be my go-to sauce for other dishes as well. The enchilada mixture made them very tender and delicious. Definitely a repeat at our house.

These enchiladas were very good. I have never made them where you add all the stuff to the meat. It was tasty. I really liked the homemade sauce. Definitely will make this again.
