How to Make Red Enchiladas w/Italian sausage


  • 11. Use sausage patties or crumble sausage or andouille. Bake at 350 for 20 min. Remove when cooked & drain fat.
  • 2Add about 1/3 of the can of enchilada sauce. Reserve the rest of the can for topping.
  • 3Soften tortillas one at a time, medium omelette pan,in oil, or microwave them two at a time.
  • 4Take sausage/sauce mixture and spoon into a softened tortilla. Roll. As you finish each enchilada, place in a 9 x 11 pan (I use the Pyrex one). Spray pan with cooking spray. Put each enchilada roll into pan, seam side down.
  • 5Top the finished pan of enchiladas with remainder of sauce. If you have any sausage left over, just sprinkle it on.
  • 6Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. In the meantime, set out garnishes. Salsa works if you don't have taco sauce.
  • 7Sprinkle cheese across center of enchiladas and bake for 5 minutes more.
  • 8Remove from oven. Pass around toppings. Enjoy!
