“Homemade” Enchiladas



Servings: 2 

Cook Time: 25 mins

Temp.: 325 degrees


1 can of enchilada sauce

1 lb of ground beef

1 tsp minced garlic or one clove

1 small onion, chopped

1 can refried beans


1 bag of shredded Mexican style cheese

4 soft shell tortillas

oil (any kind will work)

8×11′ pan

Cook the beef with the garlic and onions until browned. Do not allow the beef to cook any longer than needed. Then set to the side, prepare the soft tortillas for “frying”. Add a small amount of oil, and allow to slowly heat up. Once heated add one tortilla at a time, to be fried, make sure to do both sides. Do not over do the tortillas or you will not be able to fill them and they will start to crack. You want them to be a little toughened and still flexible. Once you have finished all the shells you want, set aside. Then prepare your pan, by putting some the enchilada sauce, on the bottom of it, you want it to be a light layer of sauce that’s covering the bottom. Then add all your ingredients in the tortillas. I usually do: beans, beef mix, cheese, salsa. Make sure not to over do it with everything because you will want to close them, and set with folded side down. Once you have all the tortillas in the pan, add the rest of the enchilada sauce on the tops and garnish with cheese. Allow to cook at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, please allow to cool before serving.
