This is a great recipe!  Just had this for dinner & will definitely make it again--I cut the recipe in half & used 1/2 pinto beans & 1/2 Amy's refried black beans.  Chipotle salsa & a little bit of guacamole on the side.  Next time I will make more cheese sauce--very very good!

This recipe is quite good.  I modified it slightly, using flour tortillas and only 2 cans of beans.  I also added a bag of frozen corn to the filling.  The cheese sauce is great, really thick and gooey.  Definitely recommended.

I made this recipe for my husband and I tonite. I cut the recipe in half and it still turned out to be way too much filling for just 2 people. I took the poster's advice about lightly frying the tortillas 15 seconds on each side before filling and rolling. They still fell apart a little after baking. I thought the cheese sauce tasted great and my husband loved them. Next time I'll just quarter the recipe, should be just right for 2.

i really want to make this recipe tonight.... corn or flour tortillas?  :)

I think I used flour for these for a softer texture....corn would make them crunchier and might be good too!

I just made this for a couple friends and myself, and we all really enjoyed it.  I even made it primarilly with cheapo Kroger-brand ingredients (being a poor college student), and it was great.  It did stick to the bottom of the pan, but that's because I didn't use enough sauce in the bottom of the pan.

I really liked these.  As other commenters mentioned, the corn tortillas made for some crumbly enchiladas, so the next time I make these I'll make some kind of casserole with them.  There was so much lefover delicious filling!  I'll probably put it in a sandwich and bring it to work tomorrow.   :-*Yay...yummy. 

Oh, and I forgot to mention that my roommate Kolby, who is staunchly meat-eating and usually doesn't much care for my cooking, liked this very much as well.

Hi, Kelia!  Nutritional yeast is not the same thing as yeast for making bread.  Nutritional yeast comes powdered or flaked and has the appearance of yellowish instant mashed potato flakes.  You may be able to find it at a regular grocery store if you have a larger one with a big natural foods section.  If not, you'll have to go to your local health food store or a natural chain like Wholefoods.  I purchase mine from the bulk bins at my local health food store.  Nutritional yeast lends a cheesy flavor to whatever you put it in.  And, yes, 1/2 cup is fine to use for making this cheese sauce.
