Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour 1 cup sauce into a wide, shallow bowl. Working with one at a time, dip tortillas in sauce, shaking off excess, then sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese down center. Roll tortilla around cheese and arrange, seam side down, in 8-inch square baking dish. Top with 1/2 cup sauce. Cover tightly with foil and bake until heated through, 10 minutes. Serve with desired toppings.

Variations

Instead of a casserole, cook enchiladas open-faced; you can make the full batch or just enough to feed two. To make: Place tortillas on a baking sheet and top each with 1/4 cup cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese melts, 5 minutes; fold or roll to close. Serve with sauce and toppings.
