Ingredient Substitution
If you don't have enchilada sauce on hand, use taco sauce instead. Also, new varieties of flour tortillas, such as green chile or cilantro-flavored can be used in place of the regular flour tortillas.
Kitchen Tip
Avoid using metal forks, knives or tongs when cooking with a contact grill, as metal utensils can damage the nonstick surface of the grill. Be sure to follow the manufacture's directions for using the grilling accessories included with your grill.
