Select your favorite canned enchilada sauce, OR MAKE YOUR OWN, then proceed with recipe.  For this recipe I used Grandpa’s Enchilada Sauce.

This recipe takes a little bit of time to make, but it is actually very easy.


  • Grandpa’s Enchilada Sauce
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Your filling of choice
    – for this recipe, I used green chiles, sauteed onion, chopped
    – another option is shredded cheese, shredded meat, green chilies, chopped tomato, minced onion, and cilantro
  • Tomato and cheese
  • Grated cheese for the top
  • Chopped chives or cilantro for garnish


  1. Pour 1/4 C sauce into the bottom of a greased casserole dish
    – Alternately you can use small individual ramekins or plates
  2. Pour about 1/2 inch of sauce into a sauté pan
  3. Heat to a simmer
  4. Dip corn tortillas in the sauce just to coat (about 3-5 seconds per side)
  5. Put 1-2 TBL filling into the middle
  6. Roll up from one end and place seam side down in casserole dish
  7. About 14 were able to fit in the 9×12 pan above
  8. Spread remainder of sauce over top and sprinkle with cheese
  9. When ready to serve bake at 350º for about 15 minutes

You can prepare this several hours ahead of time.  When you are ready to serve, just pop it into a COLD oven, set the temperature to 325, and bake for 45 minutes.

Garnish with pickled red onions, avocado, tomato, sour cream, queso fresco or refried beans.
