Personal Notes:
My Dad got this recipe from Anita, who worked with my Mom in SLC at Mountain Bell. My Mom and Dad both loved this recipe, with the surprise of peanut butter in the sauce! I found this recipe written in my hand-writing, in the depths of my Mom's recipe book (it wasn't worth showing because you could hardly see it). I have no idea where I got the recipe! I maybe ran into Anita at some point and wrote down the recipe, because my parents thought they had lost it. So glad to be able to make these delicious enchiladas again!
