This could have been better, but I think that it was mostly the canned enchilada sauce, which was a little too spicy for the kids, and bitter tasting. I'll make my own next time. Spinach might be better for our family, too. The chard was a little too tough. I'll probably make this again, with modifications.

Fantastic flavor, but the corn tortillas turned to mush and fell apart. Next time I'll make it as a layered casserole so that won't matter.

Liked this much more than the meatball dish the night before.

I used corn tortillas and they were just soggy and fell apart. Substituted kale for chard, which was good

I really liked this. Ironically, I wasn't wild about the meatball sauce with yesterday's meal but I loved it as an enchilada sauce. I also added a rotisserie chicken for added protein and used low carb tortillas to drop the carbs. Very good and filling!
