Enchiladas

First, I have to tell you I cook by the seat of my pants so to speak. I don't write anything down so this "recipe" is really off the top of my head. The measurements are well season to taste mostly. I haven't shared this with anyone so here it goes.

Ingredients:
1 pound hamburger meat
1 large can of Wolf Brand chili with beans
Cumin, Salt, Garlic Salt
Vegetable Oil
Corn Tortillas (yellow or white)
Grated Cheese (Mexican Blend or Cheddar)
1 13" X 9" baking pan

Preheat your oven to 350.
Brown your meat, drain your grease, add the can of chili, fill the can half way with water and add to your meat mix. Stir and then season with Cumin, Salt and Garlic Salt to taste. Add what you like until it tastes good to you. I usually add lots of each one until it no longer tastes like chili. You want enough water in the mix so that you have a sort of sauce to it. Let the meat mix simmer.

Meanwhile you will need a much smaller pan and add vegetable oil till it fills half the pan. Tongs are recommended for cooking these tortillas! It keeps them from falling apart or tearing. Heat the oil, dip in one tortilla at a time. Make sure you have a plate with paper towels on it. When you remove each tortilla this method will soak up the oil. You only leave the tortilla in long enough for it to be heated and soaked. You can make about 12 tortillas to fit this size pan.

Here comes the fun part, the tortillas will be hot so if you want them to cool a bit that is fine but I usually risk it and roll them while they are hot. Be careful! Roll at your own risk!

Put tortilla in baking pan and fill with meat mix and cheese. You add as much of each as you like. Roll the tortilla and repeat lining them up next to each other. Usually you can fit 8 across and then you will have room for 4 more that will be laying horizontal rather than vertical. Hope that makes sense. OK - after you rolled them all you will then take the remaining meat mix and poor it over the top of your enchiladas. Then you will take the cheese and sprinkle over the top and put it in the oven. Let it heat for 10 minutes or until cheese melts and that's it!

If you make it you have to leave me a comment here and let me know how it worked out for you.

Yum, Yum
