Sorry, but these were SO plain tasting, and truly disappointing. The base of canned refried beans mixed with the cottage cheese was just such a plain texture and flavor. — it would take so much extra ingredients and spicing that it makes more sense to choose a different recipe elsewhere.

Not bad, but just didn't wow me enough that I'd ever make this again.

Easy to prepare, hearty vegetarian meal the whole family will eat. On especially hectic nights I cheat and used a store-bought enchilada sauce. Easy to add spice to taste using chopped jalape?os,

This is an easy, quick recipe. I followed the ingredients and directions as written. This was good, but not exciting.

This recipe was such a winner! I need some mild modifications because we eat Mexican food all the time and have a pallet for those flavors.I added finely chopped onion the refried beans and cottage cheese prior to baking, and also at a couple of teaspoons of taco seasoning to flavor it up. I also took a shortcut by using Walmart brand mild enchilada sauce. I used two cans to make sure the tortillas where we'll go to do with sauce and there was extra to put over theenchiladas prior to cooking. in addition I added a good deal more cheese on top of the enchiladas, black olives, and chives for color. They came out hot, and delicious with a fabulous Southwest flavor without having to go to the closest Mexican restaurant.

I fournd this recipe pretty boring and a little bland. Though not bad-tasting, I didn't feel it was worth the effort.

I followed the recipe exactly. These were edible, but not what I'd call good. They had an odd taste - maybe the cottage cheese?

A very satisfying and inexpensive dinner, my four children and a more meat and potatoes husband can't get enough!

I've made this several times; however last night I forgot to buy the cottage cheese, so I replaced it with 1 cup Mexican cheese. My husband and I liked it sooo much more! The cottage cheese is good, but this was better. It does seem like a lot of cheese mixed with the beans, but it all melts together in the oven for a nice creamy filling.
