My Juelita was an amazing cook. I loved going to her house to help her make homemade tortillas. It always smelled incredible when she was in the kitchen and I miss her authentic Mexican cooking. But, fortunately, she passed down a few recipes here and there. My mom learned her cheese enchiladas recipe and then passed it down to me… and it is still my favorite.
Tex-Mex Cheese Enchiladas
Whenever my mom wants to cook any of us a special meal this is the dish we ask for. Even Christmas dinner always consists of enchiladas after turkey burn out at Thanksgiving. And now, I give you, our family recipe for easy Tex-Mex cheese enchiladas.
- 1 lb of cheese (we like the Fiesta blend already shredded)
- 1 large can of chili (with or without beans… we prefer without and use Wolf Brand Chili)
- 1 bag of corn tortillas (we have found Mission Corn Tortillas to be the best at not falling apart)
- Vegetable or Olive Oil
- Chili Powder
- Onion (optional)
