Stacked Enchiladas Recipe and Easy Dinner Menu
- Do you often go to a large activity where everyone has a bottle of water or pop and they all look alike? Do you have a drawer of scrunchies or cloth pony tail holders that seem to keep multiplying? Then kill two birds with one stone and slip a scrunchy or pony tail holder on to the bottle or can so you can easily identify yours. Give every member of the family his or her own color. The guys probably would prefer a black or brown one instead of hot pink and if they really aren’t in touch with their feminine sides, use a large colored rubber band instead.
- For easy snow cones, freeze orange juice (or any other juice in ice cube trays. Store frozen cubes in a plastic bag. When you are ready for a snow cone, place 5-6 cubes in the blender and blend until they have the consistency of shaved ice.

Stacked Enchiladas Recipe
1 lb. hamburger, fried, drained, seasoned with salt,
pepper, and onion and garlic powder (optional, if you don’t want to use meat use extra cheese)
1/2 head of lettuce, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
8 oz. cheddar cheese, grated
Corn tortillas, 1-2 per person
1 can enchilada sauce
Fry hamburger, chop lettuce and tomato and grate cheese. Add enchilada sauce to hamburger and keep warm. Pour cooking oil about 1/2 inch deep in medium pan and heat.
For the next step, you will be layering things quickly so make sure your plates and ingredients are all lined up and ready to go before you start. The oil is ready when a tortilla touched to the oil sizzles.
Quickly dip each tortilla into oil for 2-3 seconds (just long enough to make the tortilla very soft and pliable). This happens very fast, so be quick and watch it.
Lay tortilla on a plate and layer with 2-3 tablespoons of hamburger mix, cheese, lettuce and tomato.
Add a second or third layer of everything for men and teens or anyone with a hearty appetite.
Serves about 4-6 depending on how much you put on each layer.
If I know I’m going to have a busy day I will fry the hamburger in the morning or the day before and add the enchilada sauce to it. I store it in a microwave container so I can quickly warm it when I need it. I buy grated cheese and bag lettuce then I can have dinner ready in about 10 minutes. Even if I have to start from scratch with everything it only takes me 20 minutes to make this stacked enchiladas recipe.
