Foodie Friday: Organic Enchiladas

Making home-made Enchiladas is actually really fun and easy.
But the toughest part is deciding what to stuff it with.
I decided on traditional Enchiladas with a touch of spiciness.



Here’s what you’ll need (I bought everything at Wholefoods):
1 1/2lbs. grass fed ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped organic yellow onion, chopped
12 oz. cheese (I got the Mexican blend)
1 dozen organic corn tortillas
vegetable or canola oil
8 cloves of garlic, minced (optional)
2 jalapenos (optional)


Things I bought from Trader Joes
1 jar of enchilada sauce
1 can of crushed fire roasted tomatoes
organic sour cream
guacamole
1 can of organic baked black beans
organic tomato paste (5 Tbsp)








METHOD


PREPARE
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and season the grass fed ground beef with 2 teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of sugar, and a pinch of pepper (optional). Chop onion, mince garlic, slice jalapenos.


2 In a large fry pan at high heat add one tortilla at a time. Cook for 2-3 seconds, lift up the tortilla with a spatula, add another tortilla underneath. Cook for 2-3 seconds, lift again, both tortillas, and add another tortilla underneath. Repeat the process with all the tortillas. After you remove the tortillas, stack them up and cover with a towel.


STUFFING
3And now for the stuffing: sauté the chopped onions and grass fed ground beef. Dissolve 5 Tbsp of tomato paste into 1/2 cup of water. Add 1 can of crushed fire roasted canned tomatoes. Add both ingredients to pan, sauté till everything is cooked.


4 Brush Enchilada sauce on the bottom of a large casserole bowl. Take a tortilla, add a little shredded cheese, add a generous amount of STUFFING, then roll up the tortilla and place it in the casserole bowl. Continue until the casserole bowl is full. Brush sauce onto the top of the tortillas. Cover the whole thing with the rest of the grated cheese. Put the casserole in the oven for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.


TOPPINGS
5 I want to get a little creative with mine, so I added mince garlic and sliced jalapenos.





I say more garlic! Yes MORE GARLIC Please!

Now don’t forget to cover the whole thing with more enchilada sauce, grated cheese.
Lastly, you must put this in the oven for casserole in the oven for 10 minutes or atleast until the cheese melts (I know you’re probably starving by now).


FINISH
6 For the sides I decided on organic sour cream, guacumole, and organic baked beans.


Serves 6.






Oh how can you have Mexican food without Horchata.





Dinner is served!




Ai LOVE cooking
