Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Microwave the BirdsEye package as stated in instructions.  Pour 1/3 of Enchilada Sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 oblong baking dish.  You want to cover the bottom completely.  Next make a single layer of the tortillas on top of this sauce.  You will have to break them to make a single layer.  Next take the cooked bag of BirdsEye mix and spread it evenly on top of the tortillas.  Add a layer of cheese and then another single layer of tortillas.  Finally dump the remainder of the Enchilada sauce on top of the tortillas.  Make sure it covers all of the tortillas evenly.  Cover and bake for 20 minutes (or until sauce is bubbly) .  Uncover and add remainder of cheese for topping.  Bake uncovered till cheese melts. 

Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.  You can eat this alone, or serve it with a salad and a side of tortilla chips.
