My Grandma is a wonderful cook, although she claims to just “get by”. She’s silly and I love her, and her cooking! These enchiladas are super easy, but for some reason I just love when she makes them. I follow her recipe to a T, but hers are just always better (isn’t that the way it goes?!) So anyways here’s her recipe.
– 1 can (10 oz) red enchilada sauce
– 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (we like the Mexican blend cheese too)
– 8 whole wheat tortillas
– 1 pound ground beef
Preheat the oven to 375 F. Spray an 8 x 11- inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
Brown the ground beef, once cooked, drain the fat and return the meat to the pan. Add 1/2 cup of cheese and half the enchilada sauce to the meat. Stir and remove the mixture from the stove.
Lay out a tortilla and spoon a good amount of the meat down the middle. Sprinkle some cheese down the center of the tortilla, roll up the enchilada and place in the baking dish. Roll up the rest of the tortillas and then pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the top of the rolled up tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake it your preheated oven for 20 minutes.
Enjoy with sour cream and other garnishing of your choice.
