Beef Enchiladas

My grandmother always made two dozen of these at a time. We devoured them instantly. I’m sure your family will do the same.

Beef Enchiladas
Here are the Ingredients:
Enchilada Sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons self-rising flour
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion salt
  • salt
Heat oil in a skillet on medium high then stir in flour and chili powder, reduce heat to medium, and cook until lightly brown, stirring constantly to prevent burning flour. Gradually stir in tomato sauce, water, cumin, garlic powder, and onion salt until smooth, and continue cooking over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until thickened slightly. Add salt to taste.
  • 1  pound lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 12 corn tortillas heated in oil
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • vegetable oil for frying
Prepare a work area for assembly with shredded cheese, chopped onion, browned meat, sauce and non stick baking pan.
Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add ground beef and break apart with a spoon or spatula to crumble the meat. Saute the meat on medium heat until browned (about 5 minutes). Remove and drain cooked meat and place in a bowl.
Heat oil in another skillet and fry tortillas for a minute and place in sauce one at a time and follow assembly directions.
Assemble the enchiladas:
Place sauced tortilla on a plate and spoon 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the meat down the middle. Sprinkle 1 tablespoons of onion and 2 tablespoons of cheese on top of the meat saving some cheese for the top. Wrap the tortilla around the filling tightly and place it seam-side-down in the pan. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling until you have finished filling 12 tortillas. Place the tortillas side-by-side in the pan.
Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top of the stuffed enchiladas. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove pan from the oven and take off the foil. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top return to the oven and let the cheese melt (about 5 minutes).
Serve with your favorite condiments such as sour cream, chopped lettuce, black olives, sliced tomatoes, and radishes.
