Natali's Awesome Enchiladas

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by rusted_essence

Oh man are these tasty!!! I typically purchase groceries that will last the month so I do not have to bother with the hustle and bustle of the grocery store more than that. As a result I have to be a little more inventive as my resources deplete. I went to big lots yesterday and found a can of enchilada sauce and figured that could make us a great meal and i could finally try my hand at enchiladas... Folks we just had the best damn enchiladas that ever passed our lips and i came straight here to record the magic and share with y'all. These were easy to prepare and coupled with refried beans and spanish rice we were utterly satisfied, i hope you enjoy this...

We loved this. I did it as a casserole instead of trying to wrap the enchiladas (I'm not very good at it). I put a little bit of sauce at the bottom. 6 small corn tortillas spread out, a layer of meat, a layer of cheese sauce (minus American cheese), then 6 more tortillas, another layer of meat and cheese sauce, another 6 tortillas, remaining cheese and remaining enchilada sauce (I had [3] 10 oz. cans of sauce total for the recipe). I baked for 30 minutes, but I'll probably reduce that to 20 minutes next time so that the tortillas don't get too soft. Very tasty and had a nice spicy kick. Next time I'll serve it with fresh tomatoes and sour cream. Thanks!
