Three Cheese Enchiladas

My people love some Mexican food.  And this specific recipe is very special to me because a long ago friend from Osceola, Arkansas brought it to a church potluck once and I asked for the recipe.  She wrote it out by hand, and photocopied it since there were so many of us who wanted it.  I found it tucked away in my files the other day and my brain just flooded with memories of that sweet family!
