There are several versions of skillet enchiladas on this site, which means to me that it is a versatile dish. This version ended up a bit soupy but it tasted good. I used frozen butternut squash for the vegetarian version, which worked well.0 Helpful
Total comfort food taste but easy weeknight prep time. Loved it as is but could easily sub in ground beef or other veggies depending on what we have.0 Helpful
It was so-so. Both my husband and I thought there was too much cumin.0 Helpful
I like how easy this is. I think I’m going to use zucchini instead of butternut squash next time and add some spices for more flavor.0 Helpful
Added some hot sauce with the enchilada sauce which added some nice flavor0 Helpful
used corn instead of flour tortillas. Easy prep. Made 10 servings and my two teenage boys ate almost all of it in one sitting0 Helpful
