Family Favorite- Enchiladas

Posted on September 16, 2010. Filed under: Good Eats | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

A family favorite…brings back memories of Texas!

What you will need:

1lb Hamburger

Chili Powder

Cominos (Cumin Seed)

1 dozen tortillas (the thinnest you can find)- corn or flour

1 medium Onion, chopped finally

8oz Colby/Jack Cheese, grated


Chop the onion and saute with the hamburger. Add cominos, chili powder, and salt to taste. Cook together until the hamburger is browned. Drain. Add 1/3 of the grated cheese and warm slightly until the cheese is melted and makes the mixture stick together well. You can also use turkey or bison.

Warm the tortillas between 2 paper towels splashed with water in the microwave for 30 seconds

Make a gravy in a small saute pan out of chili powder, a little of the grease from the hamburger, water, and flour stirred together. Cook this on low untill it has the texture of a thin gravy. You can also use a can or substitute the grease for olive oil.

Prepare work area next to stove so you can work with the gravy in the pan, a plate for rolling the tortillas, and a baking pan for the tortillas. Take one warmed tortilla at a time and run it through the gravy to dampen and then place it on the plate. Do a few tortillas like this to stake them up with gravy between each tortilla. Using your hands, take some of the hamburger/cheese mixture, squeeze it into shape and place it in the tortilla and roll-up. Now, transfer the rolled tortilla to the baking pan.

Repeat till all the tortillas are full and baking pan is assembled. Cover with remaining grated cheese. Cover pan with foil and bake for 20min at 350 degrees. Serve with cooked beans, sour cream, and hot sauce!

How big is her stomach??

Food @ Flickr Turns 4 Party (111 Minna)

She has to be preparing for a growth spurt. That is the only answer.

The last few weeks it has been a marathon of food. Just to give you a sample here is today’s menu.

Breakfast- cantaloupe, Milk, and 4 powdered Doughnut Minis

Lunch- Green Pepper, PB&J, Cheese Stick, Applesauce

School Snack- Carrots

Afterschool Special Treat (TB tried to sneak this one past me)- Sharing a slice of turtle cheesecake and a Cliff Fruit Twist

Dinner (babysitter)- Mac & Cheese, Strawberries, Green Peppers

After dinner (Mommy gets home and starts dinner for TB and herself)- chips, cheese, another Cliff Fruit Twist

Final Snack- while we talk about our meeting with her teacher she proceeds to eat the rest of the cantloupe…which was probably about 10 pieces

Now I am almost 100% sure that I forgot somethings in there..which is even harder to believe that she could have eaten more.

It is just amazing and this is how it has been for the last 2 weeks. I mean last night she ate 2 servings of beef and broccoli, an egg roll, and rice. Followed by a treat for dessert.

I expect MB to grow about 2 inches in the coming month…otherwise we are going to start looking for a hollow leg.
