Recipe by peppermintkitty
This is an easy version of my easy oven baked beef enchiladas. There is probably a recipe like this, but I didn't use one and will make it often as it turned out well. It's also very easy. My hubby was hungry for this, but I wasn't going to be home, so I threw this together about 2 pm. He got home about 6 pm and said the smell was so good, he didn't take time to change clothes. I came in about 8 pm and even tho he had turned it off, it was warm and very good. Be sure not to over-cook as it will be dry and the tortillas tough on the edges. I think 4 hours would be the perfect amount of time. Serve with warm flour tortillas and butter or chips.

- 1 medium diced onion
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
