    Morgorond's Note:

    This is a great use for leftover or even canned roast beef and standard pantry/refrigerator items. The original recipe had melted butter poured over everything, but we found this to be unnecessary. There's no enchilada sauce or canned soups in this recipe and while it can be a bit time consuming, it's very, very simple. Also simply delicious! A favorite in our house since I was a very young girl. *Special note: We have been making this with low fat sour cream and cheese and heating the tortillas in the microwave to soften to cut the fat content. It turns out just fine.

      I prepared this with some alterations. I used leftover beef roast and first sauteed my onions in a bit of olive oil, added the roast beef (and some broth) to the pan along with 1 small can of green chiles, cumin, ancho chile powder, and garlic. I simmered this until most of the liquid had evaporated and the flavors had melded. I spread this inside corn tortillas that had been warmed in the microwave, then topped with a bit of the cheese before rolling. I combined more green chiles with sour cream to top the enchiladas and sprinkled the top of the casserole with cheese before baking. They were delicious. Hubby stated that this could be a standard in our house for leftover roast beef.
