This is Geoff’s mother’s recipe for enchiladas – straight from Yuma, Arizona. Serve these on a hot summer’s day with Spanish rice, refried beans, a tossed salad, and, of course, a gluten free beer. They taste absolutely fabulous and the whole meal takes less than 30 minutes to prepare!
One of our all-time favorite meals, we were finally able to convert it to gluten free with our potato flour tortillas.
What you’ll need:
8 six-inch gf and me’s potato flour tortillas (or other gluten free tortillas that can stand up to the oven without going soggy)
1 pound cooked ground beef (or steak, chicken, or stir-fried peppers and onions)
2 cups of gluten free enchilada or mole sauce (We like to use Safeway Select Enchilada Sauce, gf at time of posting)
1 small bag of Kraft Tex Mex cheese
Jalapeno peppers, optional
What you’ll do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease the bottom of a 9″ by 13″ casserole.
Spread three tablespoons of sauce over the bottom of the pan.
Stir another three tablespoons of sauce in with the ground beef, steak, chicken, or vegetables to make the filling.
Put two to three spoonfuls of the filling mixture onto a tortilla and sprinkle with cheese. Roll in half like a taco and lay on its side in casserole dish. If needed, pin the enchilada closed with a toothpick. Repeat for all eight.
Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the enchiladas, sprinkle with jalapeno peppers and any left-over filling, and top with the remaining cheese.
Cover and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the enchiladas are heated through.
