D. Lishus

Serves/Makes:4 or more

  • 1 lb (.5 kg). ground beef
  • 1 med. onion, chopped
  • 2 cans red enchilada sauce
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 4 cups (950 ml) (approximately) shredded cheese - cheddar, monterey jack or combination
  • 8 to 10 corn tortillas
  • oil
  • lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, jalapenos - whatever you like on yours!
  • Heat 2 tbsp (30 ml). oil in large skillet and cook onions and ground beef.
  • While that's cooking, combine the enchilada sauce and refried beans in a sauce pan and heat gently, stirring together to mix.
  • After beef is browned and onions are softened, add about 1/2 enchilada sauce mixture to beef, not too saucy, so perhaps less than half - you decide.
  • Soften a corn tortilla in some hot oil, and put in a handful of cheese, and top with a couple spoonfuls of beef mixture.
  • Roll up and place in a lightly greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
  • Repeat this process with remaining tortillas, beef and cheese, but save two to three cups of cheese for topping.
  • After all the enchiladas are rolled and fit into dish, pour the remaining portion of enchilada sauce-refried bean mixture all over; sprinkle with two to three cups of cheese.
  • Bake at 350 degrees (175 C.) for 25-30 min.
Serve these with the lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, jalepenos and something extra special would some guacamole - Muy Bueno!
