Recipe Monday – Easy Enchiladas

The other night I meant to make fajitas, but I didn’t have some of the ingredients. So, I found myself trying to make enchiladas for the first time in my life. And they were great!

 

1 lbs beef strips

1 tablespoon butter

2 medium onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk
2 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
12 flour or corn tortillas
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
2 green onions with tops, thinly sliced
Sour cream
Salsa
chili powder

Directions:

 
Saute beef strips with a dash of cumin, salt and chili powder. Set aside.
In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until onion is tender. Blend in flour. Stir in broth, milk, chilies, salt and cumin. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
Grease a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spoon a little sauce in the center of each tortilla; spread to edges. Place about 2 tablespoons meat down the center of each tortilla. Combine cheeses; sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons on top of meat. Roll up tortillas and place in baking dish, seam-side down. Pour remaining sauce over. Sprinkle with green onions and remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
 
Yield: 6 servings.
