Thanks to my friend Cooking Mimi I tried a wonderful dish tonight. My family loved every bite...and there was NO leftovers! Best part, it was so easy!
1 lb ground beef (I used 3 chicken breasts instead)
1 medium white onion, chopped into very small pieces
1 14oz can refried beans
1 28oz can red enchilada sauce
2 cups cheese
salt to taste
Brown your ground beef and onion that has been salted over medium heat until meat is cooked and onion is translucent. Add beans and heat through. Remove skillet from heat and add one cup of shredded cheese and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread a thin layer of sauce in the bottom of two 9” x 13” baking dishes and pour the rest into a sauce pan wide enough for the tortillas to fit into. Heat the sauce until warm and place one tortilla in the sauce until softened. Spoon a little of the filling on the tortilla then roll up. Repeat until all tortillas and filling are used. Place seam side down in baking dish.
Cover with foil and bake 20-25 minutes or until bubbly. Remove from the oven and add the reserved cup of cheese and bake, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes or until cheese has melted and begins to brown.
Don't forget to stop over and say hello to Cooking Mimi and tell her I sent you!
