This  recipe turned out a lot better than I thought it was going to when I first tried to make it, as I was trying to mimic a recipe that a friend told me about.  I wasn’t sure about the brand of sauce or about how much cheese to put inside the enchiladas. It turned out to be a good amount of cheese, and a tasty enchilada sauce that kept the enchiladas full of flavor and didn’t get too dry while cooking. It’s one of my favorites.

Cheese and Onion Enchiladas
Serves:     6        Preheat Oven Temp:  350

Ingredients List
12 corn tortillas
1 18 oz. can Las Palmas enchilada sauce
1 lb. grated cheese, Monterrey Jack and cheddar, or Colby jack

Optional: (use as desired)
1 cup chopped onion
1 small can of diced green chili’s

toppings as desired: lettuce, green onions, olives,
sour cream, tomatoes, olives, etc.


1 Warm the tortillas by microwaving or steaming so they are soft enough to roll without cracking.
2 Pour some of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
3 Spoon some of the enchilada sauce onto both sides of a tortilla so it is covered with sauce.
4 Put about 1/3 cup of the shredded cheese down the center of the tortilla.
5 Sprinkle some of the diced onion and green chili’s on top of the cheese.
6 Roll the enchilada and place it in the baking dish with the folded seam side down.
7 Repeat this for each of the additional tortillas.
8 Once the baking dish is full of rolled tortillas, pour the remaining enchilada sauce into the dish so that all of the tortillas are covered. Don’t be afraid of having too much sauce, a lot of it will absorb while cooking.
9 Top with additional shredded cheese and bake for 25 minutes.
10 After cooking, serve with green onions, olives, salsa, lettuce, sour cream, etc. as desired.
