Creamy Enchiladas

Creamy Enchiladas = Happy Tummy. My mother made this awesome dish while we were living in New Mexico. And until a couple of weeks ago, I had completely forgotten about it. It wasn’t until recently, when I saw a commercial for some sub-par looking enchiladas that I started reminiscing about good enchiladas. Full disclosure, I usually spend hours reminiscing about food from the past, so this is nothing new. But this recipe came to mind, and I knew I had to share it. Hope you enjoy!
