I like all Tex-Mex food and especially enjoy queso, I'll have to admit my husband prefers red enchilada sauce to this receipe, but I love it and good for a change.

- 1 bunch green onion
- 3 cloves chopped garlic

- Soften the corn tortillas in hot oil, or if you prefer in a canned enchilada sauce.
- In casserole dish assemble enchiladas---tortilla, meat mixture, chopped onion, grated cheese, either fold in half or roll with seam down.
- Cover with the queso sauce, top with sliced green onions, cover dish with foil and bake aproximately 25-30 minutes, this time may vary, depending on how hot all your ingredients are by the time you assemble the dish.
Quick and Easy! I made this for freezer tag and you can make this recipe OAMC by making the enchiladas ahead of time and freezing them. Defrost in microwave or overnight in fridge and then make the sauce to go on top. I used Senor Pico's Picante Sauce for the picante sauce and it worked very well.
This was great. I had a container of queso in the freezer I wanted to use, so I used that for the cheese & picante sauce. Also I used a McCormick Spice packet to season the meat and flour tortillas, cause that's what I had. I topped it with diced tomatoes and it was very filling. Everyone loved it!
