How to make Enchiladas

Updated on October 1, 2011


 How to make Enchiladas

            The enchilada is a famous Mexican street food that is basically a corn tortilla rolled around with chili pepper sauce or other spices. They can be stuffed with ingredients like meat, cheese, potatoes, vegetables, and other desired combinations. Originating from Mexico, it was traditionally eaten with small fish wrppaed around the corn tortillas.

What You Need:

2 pounds Hamburger Meat

2 cans of diced potatoes

2 packets of shredded Cheddar cheese

Taco Seasoning

1 pack of corn tortillas

1 small bottle of vegetable oil

1 big can of Old El Paso Enchilada sauce

What To Do:

            First, prepare a clean skillet and coat the bottom with vegetable oil on medium heat. Prepare another pan and pour all the Enchilada sauce in it and place the pan on the stove on low heat. Open the canned potatoes and set it aside for a while. So let us move on to the filling for the enchilada.

            Second, set heat to medium and start cooking your hamburger meat until desirably brown. When the meat is done, drain the oil and grease and return the burger to the skillet. Increase the stove’s heat to medium-low, then add the taco seasoning with a little water to the hamburger meat.

            When the meat has simmered to your liking, drain excess. After that, place the hamburger meat into a mixing bowl. Grab the canned peas and potatoes and add them to the bowl along with one pack of shredded cheese. Start mixing all the ingredients.

            Next, preheat your oven to 375ºF. Then take one corn tortilla and place it  in the pan with vegetable oil to heat it for a few seconds. Afterwards, place the tortilla in the enchilada sauce. Press down the tortilla to soak it in the sauce and then move it to a plate. Repeat the process with the remaining tortilla chips, most you can make is twelve pieces.

            When all the tortillas have been coated, stuff the middle of the tortilla with your hamburger meat. Then gently roll the tortilla and transfer it to a baking pan. Make sure the baking pan has been coated with oil to avoid sticking, or you can use a non-stick one. Do this with all the enchiladas.

            When you are done placing all the enchiladas in the baking pan, top them with your shredded cheese. Place the baking pan in your oven until the cheese has properly melted, about fifteen minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool in a rack.

            Now enjoy your very own Enchiladas! Remember that there are a lot of varieties of enchiladas you can choose from and you can also use different kinds of stuffing like beans, chicken, seafood and even garnished with olives and fresh cilantro. So do not hold back when experimenting with this delicious dish. Try out all the flavors and find what you like the most. Treat your family and friends with your own homemade enchiladas that are very easy to make. Thanks for reading yet another Hub dear readers! Till the next recipe!

      Great recipe and it looks delicious. I've always used a sauce mix but I might give this a try the next time we have Mexican food.
