Easy Enchiladas

These beef enchiladas are super easy and pretty quick to make.
1 packet Western Family (or whatever brand) Enchilada sauce
1 6 oz. can tomato paste
2 c. water
1 lb. hamburger
2-3 c. cheese
corn tortillas

Cook the hamburger and while you are cooking the hamburger combine the tomato paste, water, and sauce packet in another pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Combine 1/2 the sauce with the hamburger and about 1 c. cheese. Put a few spoonfuls of sauce in the bottom of a 9x9 pan. Fill the tortillas with the meat mixture, roll them, and place them in the pan seam down. If the tortillas are tearing, just rip them and layer tortillas and the meat in a lasagna fashion. Then top with the remaining sauce and cheese. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

I have never tried to do enchiladas with out frying up the tortilla first. I really like the idea of not doing that. It saves time and lots of calories!!! Can't wait to try!!

Amanda I made these last night, soo yummy!!! Jakob had 3 helpings :) I started off by not doing anything to the tortillas but after the first one broke I fanned them out a on plate, sprinkled them with a little water and then covered with a napkin. Then I microwaved them for 40 seconds or so. After that no problems :) Thanks for making me realize you don't have use all that oil. I feel so much better about eating them!!! Now I can make them more often with out all the guilt!!!
