Simple Enchiladas


The nice thing about enchiladas is that you can bake or microwave them.
Just roll one or two on a dinner plate, top with a little sauce and cheese, then toss them in the microwave until the cheese melts. This makes 10


For the Taco meat:
1-1/2lbs. ground chuck
2 envelopes taco seasoning (I like Taco Bell brand)
1 cup water

You'll also need:
1 package small flour tortillas ( I like Azteca brand)
1-28oz. can enchilada sauce
8oz. shredded cheddar or cheddar-jack cheese

Preheat the oven to 375*
Brown the beef. Drain the pan drippings and return the beef to the pan.
Add the seasoning and water. Simmer until most of the water has evaporated.
Dump the beef into a colander (over a bowl), and allow it to drain for a few minutes.
Fill the tortillas with the taco meat, roll them, then place them in a 13x9x2 baking pan.
Pour the enchilada sauce over the rolled tortillas.
Top with the shredded cheese, then bake until the cheese melts. Serve hot.

Then top with cheese and bake until the cheese melts. I doubled the recipe here, and baked it in a half sheet pan.

    Here's one I microwaved on a saucer. It looks and tastes exactly the same.
