    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


    Awesome wee dish to make, so easy! I put cheese in the mince then roll the wrap up and put more cheese on top, so nice.  -  09 Apr 2015


    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
