I needed something quick for supper one weeknight, and who doesn't love  enchiladas!  And fast!  It even made Dennis do a double take and say, wow, these are good!

Ingredient List:

1 lb. ground beef

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 teaspoon minced garlic


1 (7.76-oz) can tomatillos salsa, divided

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

8 (6-inch) corn tortillas (I made a few more than this)

2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Mexican four-cheese blend, divided

Vegetable cooking spray

2 cups refrigerated fresh medium-heat tomato salsa (I used the Julio's brand from HEB)

1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth

Garnish:  chopped fresh cilantro

           Easy Enchiladas
Make the Enchiladas!
Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 11 to 14 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink.  Remove beef from skillet using a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels.

Saute' onion and garlic in hot drippings over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is tender.  Remove from heat.  Stir in ground beef, 1/2 cup tomatillo salsa, and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro.

Place 2 tortillas between damp paper towels.  Microwave tortillas at HIGH 15 seconds.  Repeat procedure with remaining tortillas.

Spoon about 1/3 cup beef mixture evenly down center of each softened tortilla, and sprinkle each with 1 Tbsp. cheese; roll tortillas up, and place, seam sides down, in a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.  Lightly coat tops of tortillas with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until tortillas are crisp.

Stir together 2 cups tomato salsa, 1/2 cup chicken broth, and remaining tomatillo salsa in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes or until thoroughly heated.  Pour salsa mixture over tortillas, and top evenly with remaining cheese.  Bake 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.  Let stand 5 minutes.  Garnish, if desired.
