A Stack of Enchiladas?

Kyler licked his bowl CLEAN
It's like pancakes, only enchiladas

I found the Cheesy Enchilada Stack recipe on--you guessed it, Pinterest! Pinterest has OFFICIALLY become my goto place for new recipes. Not every recipe I have tried has been great, but many of them have. This recipe was really good, but not as good as some recent ones that I have tried. This is one of those recipes that is pretty easy to put together with basic ingredients so it's a nice quick meal for a frantic weeknight when you really don't feel up to cooking. I have a few modifications that I would make to this recipe, so grab a notepad because here they are: I used about double the amount of cheese recommended because the instructions for the recipe call for more than is listed in the ingredients; I will also use shredded rotisserie chicken next time instead of ground beef, simply because I have a killer enchilada recipe that I use rotisserie chicken in and it puts the ground beef to shame; I omitted the green chiles because I'm not a huge fan, so I will use sauteed onions next time; Last but certainly not least, apart from smelling delicious it was actually rather bland when we took our first bite--however the necessary ingredients to add when you are ready to eat are tortilla chips, picante sauce(or your salsa of choice,) and sour cream(aka "the lifesaver" of this dish.) So there you go, I have never had to modify a recipe as much as this one, but once you make the necessary adjustments I believe the end result will be spectacular! I'm guessing that this recipe will be twice as good leftover. I will also note that my suddenly picky child ate every bite and then some, so if it got his approval then you know it's good.
