I love Mexican food. It is a vice I have, so in the effort of being frugal I have set out to learn how to make some of my favorite Mexican restaurant dishes. First up is enchiladas. I could literally eat my weight in enchiladas. (Ok, yes I would probably be sick, but it would be so worth it!)
Enchilada plates at a Mexican restaurant are usually $14 each! I can make a meal for my whole family for much less than that! Enjoy trying out this uber delicious enchiladas recipe!
Total Cost of this dish is approximately $10-$12, plus it feeds 6-8!
12 flour tortillas (I know it should be corn, but family doesn’t like those)
1 1/2 lb ground turkey or beef
1 8 oz jar tomatoes with chilis
8 oz cheddar cheese
2 4 oz cans mild enchilada sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large frying pan, brown the meat. Drain the tomatoes with chilis and add to the browned meat.
Add cumin and chili powder to taste. Drain and set aside
In a 13X9 baking dish, fill the flour tortillas with the browned meat. Roll and place opening on the bottom to make sure they remained closed.
Once done filling all the shells, cover all of the enchiladas with enchilada sauce.
Cover the entire pan with cheddar cheese.
Place in the oven until the cheese is melted and the sauce is slightly bubbly. Approximately 20-30 minutes.
