Enchiladas Recipe

  • 12 tortillas
  • 2 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • Enchiladas Sauce
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.
