The caramel sauce was delicious, but for the life of me I could not get it to thicken up enough to make a thicker layer on the apples. When she says let it cool a bit, you need to just chuck it in the fridge for 15 minutes or so.

DELICIOUSSSSSS!!

I only used one can of stewed tomatoes because I was trying to "halve" the recipe, but it still came out fine considering I used normal amounts of most everything else. I bought the enchilada sauce at Trader Joe's and was surprised at how good it is.

This is definitely a do-again. It didn't...
