Ingredients:4 lbs hamburger (I've also used ground chicken meat and/or chopped up baked chicken breasts)
cumin to taste
Jalapeno peppers to taste
3 yellow onions, diced
1 large can Enchilada sauce
3 small cans of diced green chilis
5 medium-sized tomatoes, diced
1 tin of Cougar Gold Cheese
1 small block of sharp Cheddar cheese
1 large (big dia.) tortilla package,
2 small (8"-9" dia.) tortilla packages
olive oil
Preparation:Dice onions, tomatoes, place all separate ingredients into small bowls and set aside in refrigerator...

(take a break and go socialize w/people enjoying GORGEOUS weather... )

Martin goes off with Phil to check out Phil's garage... perfect WL activity...

Cook hamburger, mince and chop, cook and drain... throw in Cumin to taste, and finely chopped Jalapeno peppers, and small samples from everything else that's been prepared...

Clean out the fry pan, set the cooked enchilada meat aside in a separate large bowl...

{another break}

Come back and shred 3/4ths of a tin of Cougar Gold cheese (a bit more tart than Monterey Jack). Set out left to right: fry pan on a burner, a plate, and all the ingredients, in bowls, set back in a separate row, and the on the far, right the baking tray...

Now, everything is set up for the manufacture of Enchiladaz...

Oven to 325F. Heat fry pan and add olive oil... Cook the tortillas, until they bubble a bit, pull out and place on plate, throw the next tortilla in the fry pan, and then,

{One other thing...}

Baste both sides of the cooked-in-olive-oil tortilla with the enchilada sauce.

Add hamburger, onions, tomatoes, green chilis and cheese, roll it up, and place on baking tray, and repeat until baking tray is full.

Bake for 20 min. each, 6 for each batch.

After the batches were complete, arranged them so they remain separated, this made up 24 of em, all on the baking trays and covered them with finely shredded Cheddar. Foil over the top.

Ready to warm at 300F for twenty minutes prior to serving...

Started at 2PM, finished at 5:30pm...
Notes:Another variation/ingredient... I've had hot/spicy canned (and blanched?) vegetables chopped up to add for a little extra zing and flavor...
