creamy cheese enchiladas

I pre-apologize if someone has already posted this. My searches don't work well on this board. Is there a "tips for searching chowhound" page? I looked for hits for Reale's the other day and every post with the word "real" in it came up. Not "real" helpful. Anyway, my husband loves tex-mex. Especially, cheese enchiladas. However, many places use cheddar - yuck. Cheddar doesn't melt well. He requires something creamier, less oily. He likes Pappasitos (however we went last month and they weren't as good, many of their offerings had slipped, not sure what's going on there) and Matt's El Rancho. I believe the "secret" is that it must contain american cheese. He's also a bit particular about the chile/meat sauce. It should be orange-ish and should definately contain cumin. For a fast, cheap version, he doesn't hate Taco Cabana. I'll go ahead and tell you we've been to El Patio and Enchiladas Y Mas, he was not impressed. After seeing a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives episode, we tried Maria's Fast Tex-Mex. Again, not impressed. We're happy to drive to East Austin, location doesn't matter too much. Any suggestions?
