Be careful because once you taste these enchiladas your not going to want to eat anything else for dinner for about three days. You’ll want them for lunch, diner, again and again.

Start with purchasing the following ingredients: 15 oz. of enchilada sauce, 1/2 of a onion yellow or white, 1/4 green bell pepper, one bag of corn tortillas (12), one bag of Mexican or cheddar cheese, 1/4 pan of corn oil, or olive oil, one whole chicken or two large breast, and at least two pounds of hamburger meat, 12 X 16 oven pan, and a 12inch frying pan. 

Step 1. Decide how much you want to cook. For two people you’ll need at least 12 corn tortillas. Cut up onion, and Bell pepper set aside.

Step 2. Decide if you want beef or chicken. You can leave the meat out altogether if you just want cheese enchiladas.

Step 3. If you decide on chicken I recommend buying a precooked chicken at your local grocery store. This will cut the time down on cooking. If you use beef make sure you cook it first, drain and set aside.

Step 4. Begin to heat your corn oil on medium heat and put your enchilada sauce in a separate pan so after you heat the corn tortilla up to where it is almost hard you will then dip the corn tortilla into the pan of sauce, remove and place in oven pan.

Step 5. After placing about six corn tortillas in the oven pan, put in half of your meat and half of the cheese and half of onion and bell pepper evenly.

Step 6. Continue to add the rest of the corn tortillas on top of the first layer of enchiladas. Repeat the process of adding layers if making a larger portion.

Step 7. After all the ingredients have been added place the oven pan in the oven set at 350 degrees for around 20 minutes.

Step 8, When the pan of enchiladas let it sit for five minutes. You can add lettuce and tomatoes on top of each serving it helps for presentation and taste. See picture above.

Step 9. If you like your enchiladas hot, please add your favorite chili into the recipe.
