    Wow awesome recipe! I tweaked the recipe a little to add more spice as it tasted too much like bolognaise, and I rearranged the ingredients a little to make a sauce that can be both used to fill and top the enchiladas. You can also use the same sauce recipe for making fajitas. - 24 Sep 2013

    The whole family loved these and keep asking me to make them again and again. I added an extra half tin of tomatoes and put some of the sauce on top then added grated cheese. Baked in the oven and they were sooo yummy. - 08 Jul 2015
