My Dad's Enchiladas
- 2 lb
- 15% ground chuck
- 1 large
- yellow onion
- 6 slice
- velveeta (melty cheese), slice each slice into 4 strips
- corn tortillas
- corn oil
- 3 can(s)
- 15 ounce any brand canned chili
Brown the burger and the onion in a large frying pan. When meat is totally browned, drain and set aside to cool.
Using tongs, fry one tortilla at a time in the oil for about 3-5 seconds on each side. If the tortilla starts to bubble up and harden you’ve fried it too long. Keep it limp.
Note: The tortilla will be very hot after it is fried. I keep a small bowl of ice water nearby or leave the cold water trickling in the kitchen sink to cool my fingers. You’ll learn fast how to handle them, lol.
My wife Vickie and I do this as a team, one frying the tortillas and one rolling.
Repeat until all the enchiladas are lined up in the casserole dish.
Sprinkle left over hamburger on top. You can also spread some of your favorite grated cheese on top.
Bake about 30 minutes until you think the cheese has melted.
Serve with your favorite hot sauce.
