Recipe: Easy Cheesy Pan Enchiladas
This recipe is really easy because you can pretty much make it with any ingredient you like, whether it is leftover rice or pre-cooked chicken. It can even be a vegetarian meal as well.
½ pound Ground beef/chicken
1 sm Onion
1 sm bunch Chopped green onion
1 tbsp Crushed/chopped garlic
½ package Taco seasoning
(to taste) Black pepper
10 shells Corn Tortillas
1 sm can Enchilada Sauce
2 ½ cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 sm can Sliced Olives
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
* For a vegetarian substitute, use one can of vegetarian refried beans. I sometimes like to add leftover rice to the refried beans.
1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
2. Brown the beef/chicken.
3. Once meat is cooked, add the garlic and onions and sauté until onions are soft.
4. Add seasonings to meat mixture; mix well.
5. Remove meat mixture from heat.
6. On a low flame or heat setting, heat the oil in a small pan.
7. Place a corn tortilla in the heated pan. When the shell is soft, turn over. Place another shell on top of it then flip over so that the second shell can be heated till it is soft. Continue in this fashion, turning the shells as you add new ones.
8. In a 9 in baking dish, place about 4 tbsp of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan. Make sure the entire bottom of the pan has some sauce.
9. Arrange 4 or 5 of the shells at the bottom.
10. Spoon more sauce over the shells. Then, spoon some of the meat mixture over the shells.
11. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the meat mixture then cover with remaining shells.
12. Cover remaining shells with sauce, then cheese, then green onions and olives.
13. Bake covered for 30 minutes, then bake uncovered for an addition 10 minutes to brown a little.
