    KerryBnTX's Note:

    My son needed an enchilada recipe for his Food Science class. He wanted my recipe, but I don't use a recipe per se'. I have guestimated here and I think it should be pretty close to what I make. My enchiladas are comfort food. We have these for New Years because we are usually tired of turkey and ham by then. These can be made all beef or all cheese.

      This recipe was great! I substituted tomato paste for the puréed tomatoes. This recipe was a little spicy for my taste, so next time I will use one tablespoon or maybe even a teaspoon of chilli powder. I only keep recipes that are super good & I am a critic for good taste- so I recommend trying this one ;)

      Hi KerryBn TX, Thank you so much for this recipe. My dad said they were real good and I thought they were great. It's a good change from the ordinary red sauce in the can. I used top sirloin steaks cut into quarter inch strips, real minced garlic and onions for the powders, and fresh oregano. I used ground up coriander seeds for the dried coriander, tomato sauce for the pureed tomatoes and beef base for the chicken broth. I also added California chile and Pasilla chile powders with the chile powder. I had to add an extra can of tomato sauce because I made it too hot and dad doesn't like things hot but I do so I put some hot sauce on my ehchiladas at the table. This recipe is a keeper!
