I have always loved Mexican food, especially enchiladas. I don't want to take forever to make them though. This recipe is made with a few simple ingredients and seasoning that you should have right in your fridge and pantry. In light of that, how much easier does it get. Our Cook n' Share enchiladas are simply a must try my friend.



Off On

  1. Add the oil to a pan over medium high heat. Place the beef in. Break it up and pat it down slightly to get a bit of a sear on the bottom. Fry until just about cooked and browned. Add in the seasonings, stir, and fry for another few minutes.

  2. Add in the onion, garlic, and jalapeno. Saute and stir for 2 or 3 minutes.

  3. Put the tomato paste in and stir until the beef is coated. Pour in the tomato sauce, stir, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and allow it to simmer for about 5 minutes.

  4. Add a bit of sauce to the bottom of a baking dish. 

  5. Scoop up some of the mixture and place it in the centre of the tortilla and spread some cheese over the top. Fold each edge to the middle and place in the baking dish seam side down. 

  6. Spoon the remaining sauce over the top of the enchiladas and spread the remaining cheese over. 

  7. Place the enchiladas in a 350 degree F 180 C preheated oven for 15 minutes.

  8. Garnish with the cilantro, plate, serve, and enjoy!

I like my enchilada sauce a little on the thick side. If you enjoy it runnier, add a bit more tomato sauce or beef broth.

As always, you can alter the seasoning according to your liking.

I use cheddar cheese, but use the cheese of your choice.
