SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio school district’s popular enchilada recipe has made its way to Sweden — and it was a hit there too.

The school lunch staple was served up at a school in Stockholm, the North East Independent School District said in a recent Facebook post.

A screenshot of a post on the “TIPS for School Meals That Rock” Facebook group shows trays of enchiladas smothered in chili and cheese, saying they were inspired by NEISD’s recipe.

“The kids in our school loved it,” the post said. “Not a single portion left.”
