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)



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

Sour Cream
Can of refried beans

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? 🙂
