Today my mom is sharing her photo and recipe with us for Beef Enchiladas. Yum!
I am honored to have my mother-in-laws recipe for beef enchiladas. This is my husband's favorite food.
Mary's Beef Enchiladas
3 pounds ground beef
1 sweet yellow onion
salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste
Brown meat and chopped onion in large skillet and season to taste.
1/4 cup oil
4 TB flour
16 oz tomato sauce
2 cups water
1/4 cup chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
20 flour tortillas
1 1/2 pounds grated cheddar cheese
In a large saucepan, heat oil. Then stir in flour and whisk till light brown. Add tomato sauce, water, and seasonings and simmer until it thickens slightly. Add more water as needed. Turn off heat on meat and sauce and let sit until to cool enough to handle. Pour a small amount of sauce on a cookie sheet and dampen flour tortilla on both sides. Put a large spoon of meat on center of tortilla and sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese. Roll and put in baking dish. Repeat with all tortillas, placing them close together so that they're touching. You will probably need two 13x9 dishes. Pour any remaining sauce on top of rolled tortillas and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes.
