Egg Enchiladas

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by cookiedog

These are scrambled eggs with a Mexican twist that can be served any time of the day. They don't require baking time however; they are slipped under the broiler to melt the cheese. Sometimes I heat the tortillas briefly in the microwave before dipping in the sauce to keep them from cracking when rolling them up. Recipe is from Sunset Mexican Cook Book.
