Cheater's Enchiladas

This is the lazy man's version of enchiladas (hence the name, Cheater's Enchiladas) which was perfect for us the other night when we wanted to use up the tortillas and ground beef we had. These enchiladas are good, especially for the minimum effort they require, but they are not great. We recommend trying the same recipe with corn tortillas and enchilada sauce if you have the ingredients available.

3 Large (burrito sized) flour tortillas
1 1/2 Cups tomato sauce
1/2 lb ground beef
1 Cup shredded cheese
1/2 Cup sour cream
1 Onion, chopped
4 Hot peppers, chopped
1 bulb garlic
salt, pepper, and other seasonings

Cook the ground beef with the onion, peppers and garlic. Add seasonings such as pepper, salt, oregano and basil. Pour 1/2 cup tomato sauce into the bottom of an oven-safe dish.

Once the beef is finished, lay out a flour tortilla (it i easier to bend them if you heat them up in the oven for about one minute first). Place 1/3 of the ground beef, a small amount of cheese, and two spoonfuls of sour cream into the tortilla.

Wrap like a burrito and place in the dish with tomato sauce. Repeat for the remaining two tortillas.

Once finished, pour the rest of the tomato sauce over the tortillas, use the rest of the cheese on top, and bake covered at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Serve this Mexican treat with Mexican rice, beans and the rest of the sour cream.
