- 12 tortillas
- 2 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup onion, finely chopped
- Enchiladas Sauce
- 2 tablespoons onion, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 can of tomatoes, chopped and drained (juiced reserved)
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon of Tabasco
Start by making the sauce. In a skillet, saute the onion in the
butter. Next, stir in the flour and brown slightly. Add the
tomatoes, 1/4 cup of the tomato juice, the garlic, salt and Tabasco
and allow to cook until the desired thickness if reached.
If you like a very consistent sauce you can run in through a blender
or food processor. Pour 1/4 of the sauce onto the bottom of a 13 x 9
inch baking dish.
Next, Mix the 2 cups of cheddar with the cup of onion. Distribute the
mixture evenly between the tortillas. Roll the tortillas into
enchiladas and place them in the baking dish. Pour the remainder of
the sauce evenly over the enchiladas and bake for 15 minutes in a 350
degree oven or until cheese is well melted.
Serve the enchiladas with other dishes such as guacamole or chicken
tacos for a complete Mexican themed dinner party.
