the real thing: NHSparky's enchiladas
« on: February 09, 2012, 03:59:56 PM »
Brown ground beef and onion, drain fat.

Have a butt-ton of cheese (I like the pre-shredded Mexican cheese) ready to go.

Sauce:

16 oz can tomato sauce
4-6 ounces green chiles (or one can chopped green chiles)
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional if you like hot)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder

Bring sauce ingredients together in saucepan and allow to heat for a few mintues.

In greased or sprayed 13 X 9 pan, put small amount of sauce in bottom.

Using CORN (CORN!!!!) tortillas (microwave them between damp paper towels for 10-15 seconds to make them more pliable), dip each side of the tortilla in the sauce to moisten it, take a spoonful of meat/onion mix and a little cheese, roll them up, and put them in the pan.  Top with remaining sauce and healthy amount of cheese.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Yes, I'll probably be BS'ed by the "purists" for not heating up my corn tortillas in oil, but I nuke them for a few seconds because it still gets them soft just long enough without adding all the oil/fat to it.

Meh.  Like I said, expected.  I can't be TOTALLY unhealthy.  Besides, hard to get real lard too sometimes.  And I save that for the beans.

At least I avoid the canned crap where possible.

Much appreciated.  I'm going to have to make these again pretty soon.  The kids for whatever reason claim they don't like Mexican food, but you'd never know it the way they go through my tacos, chili, and enchiladas.
