Cheater's Enchiladas

Five ingredients, ten minutes prep time and twenty minutes to cook - now that's what I call cheating, since it tastes good and takes little time.

  • I added chicken as suggested below and used flour tortillas. It is one of our families favorites now. I had to make a small seperate one for myself without the dairy (dairy is a migraine trigger for me) and it was still great..

  • I didn't know you could freeze sour cream?

  • Sounds good but needs some protein. Chicken would be nice.
    Buy these items when on sale. Sour cream, tortillas and cheese can be frozen. Use low fat products for health issues.

  • To taznla, coupon Baby! Thats what we do, we are on ss also. Go to fresh veggie stands for a good buy.
    Look for an Aldi or Sav A Lot store in your area,they have good deals also. Remember, make,eat and freeze the rest. Also look for food banks in your area,there are also some church groups that are giving away food and have food packs to buy that are cheap. We also are diabetic and very ill. Where there is a will ,there is a way, God Bless.

  • I tried this and its indeed very tastey i also tried it with the black beans and chicken instead of olives and was equally as good!

  • But if you add chicken to this, it won't be a vegetarian recipe any more!

  • If you top the whole casserole with the shredded Mexican blend cheese you can find in your local grocery store, it looks really pretty and you can slice it with a spatuala or knife and no one will ever know that they are not rolled enchalads...I would definitely add chicken and subtract the black olives and substitute a can (or two) of drained black beans...a little more of a Mexican flair than the black olives.

  • You can add cooked chicken to this and make chicken enchiladas.
