How to Make Cheater Enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine enchilada sauce and chili; mix well.
    Spoon a small amount into the bottom of a 9"x 7" baking dish, spreading to cover lightly.
  2. Place taquitos in a single layer over the sauce.

    NOTE: When I used the whole package of taquitos, there wasn't enough sauce, which is why I only recommend 6-8.
  3. If using alternative method, spoon 1/2 tsp. onion and 1/4 c. cheese into each tortilla and roll up tightly, then place in a single layer in baking dish.
  4. Pour remaining sauce over taquitos. If desired, top with extra cheese.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbly.
