*My husband and I have different spice levels so I always spread Hot Salsa on half of the Enchiladas and Mild Salsa over the other half. If you notice in the picture below, I inserted toothpicks in the Hot Enchiladas before baking so I don’t get confused and accidentally grab one of the hubs. Ouch!
