How To Make swiss enchiladas

  • 1
    Heat 1 cup of oil in a frying pan on med. high heat. Cook each tortilla in the hot oil for 3 seconds. Lay them on a paper bag from the grocery store to cool. The bag soaks up leftover grease. Don't cook them longer or they will get hard. You can add more oil in the pan, tear the round tortillas criss cross into 4th's and cook then till golden brown to make homemade tortilla chips to go with your Enchiladas.
