Thanks for explaining what you did and how you did it
for your delicious hot dog bun pancakes Wayne!
Me, I like to cook once and eat many times. I am
also a Mexican food lover.
Here is my easy to make Stacked Enchiladas!
STACKED ENCHILADA CASSEROLE WITH HOME MADE RED SAUCE
RED ENCHILADA SAUCE
This homemade red enchilada sauce is WAY better than anything you can buy in the can, and quick and easy to make as well!
PREP: 5 MINS COOK: 15 MINS TOTAL: 20 MINS
• 2 Tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
• 2 Tbsp. all-purpose or gluten-free flour
• 4 Tbsp. chili powder (*not cayenne! also, see note below if you do not like heat*)
• 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1/4 tsp. cumin
• 1/4 tsp. oregano
• 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add flour and stir together over the heat for one minute. Stir in the remaining seasonings (chili powder through oregano). Then gradually add in the stock, whisking constantly to remove lumps. Reduce heat and simmer 10-15 minutes until thick.
Use immediately or refrigerate in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.
*I consider this sauce pretty mild. But if you are wary about heat/spice in your sauce, I would begin with 2 tablespoons chili powder and add more from there once the sauce has reached a simmer if you'd like.
Again, I am using chili powder for this recipe, not cayenne. From the comments, it sounds as though chili powders vary from country to country. But the traditional American chili powder is fairly mild, and should not be overly spicy.
To make the enchiladas, you’re basically going to literally stack the ingredients however you’d like. I usually do a layer of enchilada sauce, then tortillas…then black beans and corn (or whatever other ingredients you’d like) then green (or sauted diced yellow) onions and shredded cooked chicken…then your cheese. And then repeat two more times, so that you have three layers.
I then finish the enchiladas with a layer of tortillas topped with enchilada sauce. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 20 minutes. Then uncover and sprinkle with a little more cheese, and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is nice and melted.
Then pile on your favorite toppings, like avocado, fresh cilantro and more green onions. Sour cream might also be lovely.
