This is one of those recipes that is the epitome of comfort food for me. The enchiladas are warm, soothing, cheesy, tasty, and downright comforting. And my favorite part? Everyone can add whatever toppings they like, so everyone gets their way. It really is a win-win!
1 lb. ground beef, browned
1/2 c chopped onion, optional
1 can olives, sliced
1 small can tomato sauce
1 packet McCormick enchilada sauce mix
1 package corn or flour tortillas
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar jack cheese
After browning hamburger, add onions and olives (optional). Make up sauce according to package directions. Add 1/2 cup sauce and 1 cup cheese to hamburger mixture. Stir well. Grease 9 x 13 pan. Warm tortillas, dip in enchilada sauce, and fill with approx. 2/3 cup hamburger mixture. Roll up and place seam side down in buttered 9 x 13 dish. Repeat until pan is full. Sprinkle rest of cheese over tortillas. Bake 350 for 15-20 minutes. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, etc. Can use onions and olives as a topping instead of inside the enchiladas.
