I dont know where my step-mom came up with thsi recipe, but I grew up on it, and it is a favorite when the kids come to visit. I know it sounds strange to add onion and brown gravy to the canned enchilada sauce, but it so works, I promise. It sure makes that canned stuff taste a whole lot better! Just try it, you will see! I also have made these with refried beans and ground beef seasoned with taco mix. The fav is the cheese ones around here.

How to Make Easy Cheese Enchiladas

Step-by-Step

  • 1Cut chedder cheese into 12 pieces, also cut the jack cheese into 12 pieces. Chop the onion fine. Slice the olives. Chop the tomato, set aside.
  • 2Prepare gravy mix as directed on each package..(2 cups water mixed in with both packages, stir well and cook til thickened) add enchilada sauce and stir well. Pour about 1/2 cup into bottem of a 8x11 pan.
  • 3Soften tortillas in a little bit of oil..you dont want to fry them, just soften them and put them on a plate.
  • 4Take one tortilla and put in a slice of cheddar and a slice of jack cheese, about a teaspoon or a little less of onion and sprinkle a few olives on it, then roll up
  • 5Pour Sauce over enchiladas and sprinkle some cheese on top, then some olives and bake 350 for 30 minutes. Let sit 10 minutes to set or they wont come out of the pan real nice. Top with chopped tomatoes , sour cream
  • 6if I am having company over, I double this and put it in a 13x9 pan. I also have varied this adding some hamburger seasoned with taco seasoning mix and a can of green chilis and cheese, or refried beans and cheese. Another time I used a rottiserie chicken and shredded it with some cheese for teh filling. The plain cheese ones are the favorite though.
