  • In a skillet over medium heat, saute onions until almost translucent. Stir in beef, garlic, and chile peppers, and continue cooking until the meat is no longer pink. Pour in the tomato sauce and chili powder. Mix thoroughly and heat through. Remove from heat.

  • Spoon a little of the meat mixture into a corn tortilla and add small amounts of salsa, Cheddar cheese and olives. Fold the tortilla up and place in the prepared casserole dish. Repeat for the remaining tortillas using up all of the meat mixture. Reserve 1/2 cup of Cheddar cheese for topping.

  • Pour the other half of the tomato sauce and sour cream over all of the tortillas. Top with green onions and 1/2 cup of reserved Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until hot and bubbly.

This was a delicious recipe! I did make some changes to the original, however. I used canned enchilada sauce and Mexican cheese (instead of the cheddar.) Also, I layered the corn tortillas, rather than roll each one. I decided to do this because the tortillas kept cracking. This was a wonderful dish that I will make again and again! Read More

I've made this recipe 3 times now and each time i did it differently trying to make it better. This is what you do: Use steak-ums instead of beef. Don't put tomato sauce on top. I used flour tortillas. Who likes cooked sour cream? eww. Basically follow the recipe for the meat and then roll up in flour tortillas. Then only put cheese on top (i used monterey jack/colby) and bake. Then on each person's serving add sour cream chopped green onions chi chi's salsa... This tastes really good! Read More

Wow! Delish! These enchiladas scored a touchdown on my Super Bowl Sunday Buffet table! I left out one can of chilis and used Sara's Red Enchilada Sauce from this site in place of tomato sauce. Heat the tortillas in a non-stick pan for a half minute or so this will make them pliable without the oil or sauce on them. I also served the sour cream on the side for garnish rather than in with the sauce. Thanks Sara. Read More

A good basic enchilda recipe. I modified mine slightly due to what ingredients I had on hand. I used canned enchilada sause instead of the tomato/chili powder combo. I also used ground beef. I imagine it would be fine either way. Read More

Very good enchiladas! I used "Red Enchilada Sauce" submitted by Sara instead of the tomato sauce more cheese flour tortillas (we like them better than the corn ones) and only one can of green chiles. I served over a bed of shredded lettuce and used the sour cream as a garnish instead of putting it in the dish. Next time I might add some bell peppers. I could see ground beef working equally as good. Thanks Sara! Read More

Simply AWESOME! I cooked my beef in a crockpot so that it would be nice and tender and easy to shred. I added all the ingredients to the crock pot: sauted onions garlic peppers tomato sauce chili powder. I also added enchilada seasoning enchilada sauce and 1/4 cup of chicken stock. Cooked in crockpot for 5 hours on high. I didn't have black olives but did add refried beans to my tortilla rolls. This came out wonderful and was full of flavor. My family loved it! Read More

This dish turned out really well. I forgot to separate the tomato sauce so I didn't have any left to pour over the top but it still turned out OK. I think it would have had more moisture if I had done it right though! I think I will use ground beef instead of sirloin steak next time I make this recipe. Read More
