PREPARATION
1.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
PREPARING THE SAUCE
2.
In a saucepan, combine oil and flour over medium heat to create a paste.
3.
After a minute or so, add enchilada sauce, chicken broth and salt.
4.
Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 30-45 minutes. At around the 40 minute mark, add in 2 tbsp cilantro.
PREPARING THE MEAT
5.
While the sauce is simmering, brown the hamburger meat along with the onions.
6.
When cooked through, drain fat.
7.
Stir in the green chillies, salt, chili powder, ground cumin and red pepper flakes.
PREPARING THE ENCHILADAS
8.
Pour about 1/2 cup of sauce on the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
9.
In a small baking pan (a round cake pan works well), pour some of the sauce into the bottom. Dip each tortilla into the sauce so that both sides are coated, then add the ground beef mixture, shredded cheddar, and a few sliced green onions.
10.
Roll up the tortilla nice and tight and place in the bottom of the pan.
11.
Continue this process until you have no more tortillas and filling left. Pour remaining sauce over the top of the enchiladas and top with remaining shredded cheddar.
BAKING
12.
Bake for around 20 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the cheddar cheese is melted.
13.
Top it off by adding a little fresh green onion and cilantro, and a dollop of sour cream.
