The first time I remember having these I was about 8, on a vacation with my mama and daddy. We were traveling in a pickup truck with a camper that had a bed and a little kitchen. Daddy was a truckdriver and only pulled over to the side of the road long enough for mama to cook and clean up and then we were off again! I don't think it was much of a vacation for either of them LOL. Mama would fry and egg and put on top of their enchiladas. This is one of my husband's favorites now. Very simple to do, just uses a lot of dishes!

How to Make Mimi's Flat Enchiladas

Put on chili, onions and cheese. Place another tortilla in oil and dip in enchilada sauce. Repeat layering until you have as many enchiladas as 1 person will eat, ending with the tortilla coated with sauce. Then put more cheese on top and put into oven to heat and melt cheese while you are making other plates.
  2. When you have finished making enchiladas serve a plate to each person with sour cream, picante sauce, guacamole, extra cheese, onions, tomatoes and black olives or jalapeno peppers as desired.
  3. Also good with refried beans and Mexican rice on the side.
