Casa Ole Enchiladas Attempt #3
So, after realizing the error of my ways, I tried a batch of enchiladas last night. I used the same sauce recipe I did last time, but did as I suggested in my epiphany. Once my sauce was completed, I used about four ladles worth of the gravy to cover the bottom of my pan. I then rolled my enchiladas with my mild cheddar and baked them just long enough to melt the cheese. When they came out of the oven, I poured the rest of the gravy on top, and added my cheese blend on the top of that. I used the Mexican blend cheese this time, since the taco blend has additional spices. It came out the proper texture, but could have used a little more gravy. I plan to halve my gravy recipe and add that much more to it the next time I attempt this in order to make them a little more "saucey."
