  1. Greetings. I am usually not a fan of enchiladas, but made the "No Tortilla Enchilada Bake" for after church because I needed to make something that would go with white rice for the missionary from the Dominican Republic who is visiting us (he was craving white rice...a daily staple at home). I also made it with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. It was DEE-licious! I really liked the homemade enchilada sauce you recommended. Yum. Thanks!
