Enchiladas!

December 10, 2010 at 9:37 pm (cooking) (, , )

Man, I hadn’t had enchiladas in AGES, but I had a hankering. So, my mom has shared with me her relatively easy enchilada recipe she used to make when we were kids. (By we, I meant my sister and I lol)

 

 

Ingredients:
oil (canola, corn…not olive)
corn tortillas
can of red enchilada sauce
cheese

Sides:
Sour Cream
Can of refried beans
Pico!

First, turn on the oven to 350. While it preheats, warm up the oil in a pan large enough for a tortilla (not frying hot, just enough to warm the tortillas.)

*When it comes to tortilla selection, you should go for the taco-sized thicker variety. Don’t go cheap. ^^.; (I learned this the hard way tonight lol)

Once the oil is warm, put in one tortilla at a time – just enough to darken it, to soak up a little oil. Have a paper towel ready, this goes pretty quickly.

Once the tortillas have been oiled (or as you went with a helper), add cheese and roll them up. (You can add chicken, or veggies, whatever you desire. Cheese is my favorite lol) Put the rolled tortillas in a flat glass baking dish (We used a 13×9).

Once the pan is full, pour the red enchilada sauce over them – don’t drown them. Use your best judgement. 🙂 Top with more cheese, then bake for about 15 minutes.

Pair with rice, beans, pico, whatever suits your fancy. ^__^. Add a dollop of sour cream and yum!
Relatively easy, no? 🙂
