I was thinking about making enchiritos the other day, and am glad I found your recipe. I made it exactly as written, except that I used two jars of enchilada sauce instead of red chili sauce. I made it in a 13"x9" pan, and put some sauce on the bottom. Then I placed the folded enchiritos in the pan. I cooked mine at 350 degrees for 15 minutes instead of microwaving them. It was interesting to learn the technique of mixing seasoned ground beef with water in a skillet and breaking it up until it is a little mushy. It made a much better consistency for the filling than just sauteed hamburger. I'll use this method again when making tacos, etc. We used sour cream and green onions as toppings. These are so delicious, and I'll be making them again!
Great recipe but subbed enchilada sauce for chili sauce.
Most delicious! I added 2 pickled jalapenos to the meat mixture after tasting and baked it in oven.
