Tonight, I made one of Scott’s favorites for dinner: Enchiladas!


I love that this is one of his favs – cause they are sooo easy to make. And are great leftovers too.


1# ground beef (I use at least 93% lean)
onion – chopped
1 pkg tortillas
3 cans enchilada sauce (I usually get a mix of hot and mild)
1 pkg Mexican cheese

Brown beef and onions in a frying pan. Drain off liquid. Add about 1/2 –3/4 can enchilada sauce and 1 cup cheese into beef/onion mixture.

Take 9×13 pan, pour rest of can onto bottom of pan.

Fill tortillas with beef/onion/sauce/cheese mixture. Roll and place in pan with seam side down.

Pour remaining can of sauce over top, add remaining cheese on top. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes until cheese is bubbly and enchiladas are hot.

Making the enchiladas. . .

The ingredients:


My fav enchilada sauce: Old El Paso


Browning beef and onion


How I roll the enchiladas. . .make sure to place them seam side down in the pan.


All filled up.


Pouring the sauce over the top.


Top with Mexican cheese and ready for the oven!


Just out of the oven.


Dinner was broccoli with a sprinkle of blue cheese and an enchilada.


All that was missing was the margarita. . . Winking smile 


During dinner, Abby was very interested in a squirrel climbing a tree outside in the yard.

She watched from the window for a while.  . .


And then laid on the deck to watch some more. . . in the rain!


Scott and I shared some frosted sugar cookies for dessert – only 1 type of dessert and done before 8:30!


Off to St. Paul tomorrow for a Spring Refresher in Family Medicine. Hope it’s full of good info! See ya tomorrow.
