    Optional toppings


    1. 1
      Completely, but lightly cover both sides of one tortilla with shortening (Don't be afraid to use your hands), then place the tortilla on a microwave-safe plate.
    2. 2
      Completely but lightly cover one side of the next tortilla and place it atop the first tortilla, shortening side up.
    3. 3
      Repeat Step 2 until all tortillas are stacked, then microwave the entire stack on high for about 4 minutes and allow to cool.
    4. 4
      Place shredded cheese in a bowl (if using diced onions, mix them in with the cheese now).
    5. 5
      Lightly cover the bottom of a baking dish (mine is 13x9, I think) with some of the juice from the beans (This will prevent the tortillas from becoming stiff and chewy as they cook).
    6. 6
      Place a generous portion of the cheese/onion mixture onto a tortilla, then roll the tortilla like a cigar (not too tight though).
    7. 7
      Place into the baking dish, seam side down to prevent the enchilada from unrolling.
    8. 8
      Repeat until all tortillas have been stuffed, rolled and placed into the baking dish.
    9. 9
      Cover the enchiladas with the beans and any leftover cheese/onion mixture.
    10. 10
      Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven.
    11. 11
      Allow to cool for 5 minutes, top with any, all, or none of the optional toppings, and serve.

      The simplicity of preparing this dish and the everyday ingredients it calls for, coupled with a really nice blend of flavors makes for a great meal. My personal preference says this definitely needs the optional toppings Mark has shown or others of your choice!
