My Easy Enchiladas
This recipe for Enchiladas is so simple you can invite your kids to join in. You can use beef or just cheese depending on your mood. The sauce can be a bit messy, so wear an apron!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
• 12 corn tortillas
• 1 28oz can of red enchilada sauce
• 2 cups (16 oz) mozzarella or queso Blanco
• 1 1/2 cups meat (optional) shredded beef, chicken or pork
• 2-3 tablespoons oil
Coat each tortilla with oil using your hands or a brush. Spread out on a cookie sheet or baking dish and bake in a 500 degree oven for about 7 minutes. Take out to cool until they are warm to the touch.
The cheese can be shredded, or just cut into slices 3-4 inches long, and 1/4 inch thick. (Or thicker if you like them really cheesy.)
Pour just enough sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 glass baking dish to cover the it. Pour the rest of the sauce in a large bowl. Dip tortillas, one at a time, in the bowl to coat with sauce.
Lay the tortilla in baking dish and if you’re using the meat, put in about 2-3 tablespoons. Place the cheese on top of the meat. Fold one edge over the cheese, then the other one, then turn the whole thing over, folded side down, in baking dish. Repeat for each tortilla. Sprinkle any leftover sauce and/or cheese on top of enchiladas.
Place in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
