Recipe Notes

This recipe works beautifully with Mission brand Gluten Free flour tortillas.

This makes a great freezer dinner.  I package mine using my FoodSaver vacuum packer.  They  last for 6-8 months and reheat perfectly.

Make for freezer meals as follows:

Follow the recipe instructions through step 6.  Cool the sauce completely.  Package in an air-tight freezer-safe container, label and freeze for up to 2 months.

Beginning with step 9, assemble the enchiladas.  When the enchiladas are formed, place in an air-tight, freezer-safe container, label and freeze for up to 2 months.

When you are ready to use, remove the enchiladas and sauce from the freezer and allow to thaw at room temperature for up to 2 hours (or thaw in the refrigerator for a day).

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Place 1/2 cup of thawed sauce in a prepared baking dish.  Place the enchiladas, seam side down, in the pan.  Top with the remaining sauce and 1-1/2 cups of cheese.  Bake til warm and bubbly - 20 - 30 minutes.
