Homemade Stacked Enchiladas Recipe

Homemade Stacked Enchiladas Recipe

1/2 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped, or 1 tsp. onion powder
2 1/2 cups enchilada sauce
* vegetable oil for frying
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
1 onion, chopped, or 1 tsp. onion powder
1 tomato, chopped
2 cups lettuce, chopped

In a saucepan, brown ground beef and onions and drain. Add enchilada sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.

Heat 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan. While you are waiting for the oil to heat, prepare bowls of tomatoes, lettuce and cheese. The oil is hot when it sizzles when the tortilla is placed in it.

Have your plate ready in one hand and dip the tortilla in oil for 5 seconds. Turn it over and cook 5 more seconds. Lift out of pan, hold over oil and drain slightly. Place it on the plate and put 1/4 cup beef mixture on top. Dip another tortilla in the oil and fry the same as above, place on top of beef mixture.

Top with more beef mixture, tomatoes and lettuce and then finish with a little cheese, sour cream and olives if desired. Serve warm. Serves 4.

*For lower fat enchiladas dip in warmed enchilada sauce or just warm tortilla in the microwave for 8 seconds then add meat and toppings.
