Summer Squash Enchiliadas
Can I just say her Jack Chili Sauce makes the recipe? OK she called it spice sauce but with Monterey Jack Cheese and Chili powder playing starring roles I thought I'd rename it. It is a must!
Jan's Tips: I double the sauce recipe. but that is personal preference for me. I used 2 teaspoons total Chili powder in the double batch of sauce. I used a cheddar-jack cheese mix because that's what I had on hand.
