Enchiladas are spicy to begin with, if you like a lot of heat then you can opt for the optional diced chipotle peppers in the filling. The number of enchiladas will depend on size of pan, tightness of rolling, etc. Avocado cream can be kept in the fridge for a few days, and shouldn't brown thanks to the lime juice used.
