Cheese, Cheese & Onion, Beef & Cheese Enchilada Fillings

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is the filling to my Enchilada Sauce Recipe. The amounts of each is just estimates. This all depends on how much you put in each tortilla, how big your tortillas are and if you use just one, two or all three choices. If you make all three you can use toothpicks to mark which one is which. None for one, flat for another and round for the last.

I was in a crunch to make dinner tonight and had the ingredients on hand to make the beef and cheese (and onion) version of these along with Texas Red Enchilada Sauce Recipe "#42094101" and it was fabulous! I also make beef and cheese nachos using the finely ground beef mixture with a white cheese sauce I purchased from Sam's Club. Easy, yet delicious!

Excellent recipe for an easy to make meal! I made the cheese and onion filling and also added a tomato - at my daughter's request! I made pockets out of my tortillas, and cut back on the cheese for the topping a bit - but other than that this was made as stated. A easy and simple recipe - thanks! FT:-)(I also added jalapeno peppers to the top on serving!)

I made the cheese & onion filling wrapping in softened corn tortillas. I topped with a green chili enchilada sauce & cheese and baked. Simple & perfect! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
