Love your Enchilada sauce!!! Long time Las Palmas fan too. Here is the shortest shortcut to great enchiladas. this serves 2-3 people. Use Delimex shredded beef taquitos, and a meatloaf pan. lay 7 taquitos in bottom (you have to break 2 to fill in the samll gap) and them layer sauce and cheese, repeat for 2 layers. top with foil. 45-55 minutes in a 350 degree oven... minimal mess too.

I don't understand the poor rating. There's no reason. I gave a 4 because of the high amount of sodium, fats, and cholesterol. But, I will try this recipe with a few changes to brings those 3 items down. I love enchiladas and have shared this recipe.

I saute chopped onions with the hamburger filling. You can also saute diced red or green peppers. This goes great with a big salad or a mango/pineapple salad on the side.

I enjoyed making this recipe. I modified it a little with whole grain tortilla shells and low fat Mexican shredded cheese. I also added chopped onions and green peppers with enchilada seasonings.I just have to work on my tortilla rolling skills. Happy in Charleston!
