Can You Use Flour Tortillas In Enchiladas?

Corn tortillas are traditionally used in enchiladas, but flour tortillas can also be used.

Can Enchiladas Be Made Ahead?

You can assemble enchiladas the night before and refrigerate until you are ready to bake.

If you assemble ahead of time, add the final sauce and cheese just before you bake.

How Do You Keep Enchiladas From Being Soggy?

The most important dip for avoiding soggy enchiladas is to briefly fry the tortillas before filling and rolling them.

These enchiladas freeze great uncooked and are also great even in the fridge uncooked for a day or two. I’ve found them to be a great meal to bring to friends and family along with chips and salsa and a salad!
