Cheese Enchiladas

I love me some Mexican food. I've been searching and searching for a good enchilada recipe and I think I finally found it! I just made these straight cheese, but you could certainly add pork, beef, chicken, you name it! They're easy and relatively quick!

Cheese Enchiladas-Adapted from That's Some Good Cookin'
Total Time 30 Minutes
Serves 8

  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 20 ounces enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups Mexican shredded cheese
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • Sour cream, salsa, guacamole for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9 x 11 inch baking pan. Warm tortillas in the microwave for about 15 seconds to make more malleable.

Pour a small layer of enchilada sauce into the bottom of the baking dish (about a 1/2 cup). Pour remaining enchilada sauce into a large bowl. 

One at a time, dip both sides of the tortilla into the sauce and place on a plate. Top with about 3 tablespoons cheese and 1 teaspoon chopped onion. Fold enchiladas into a tight roll and place into baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas, layering them tightly next to each other in the baking pan.

Pour remaining enchilada sauce (you may not need all) over the tortillas and sprinkle with cheese. Place in oven, uncovered about 30 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream, salsa, guacamole or your other condiment choice.
