Freeze first or Cook first enchilada

I have some time this weekend that I was hoping to make some enchiladas for our Christmas dinner. If I were to make those this weekend would it be best to freeze those before baking and then bake on the day of Christmas, or bake now and then freeze and reheat?

I think you could go either way, but here’s what I'd do. I'd cook the filling, roll the filling in the tortillas, and layer them in a freezer safe/oven safe casserole dish. Once it cooled, I’d wrap it well and freeze it. I’d make the sauce and freeze that separately. On the night before, I’d defrost everything in the refrigerator, and on the day of, I’d let it all come to room temperature while the oven heated. Then I’d add the sauce and cheese and bake it. I hope this helps.
