In the Kitchen with Kebi

Here is my recipe for Enchiladas with Sour Cream Sauce.
I adapted this recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook and I really love it. It's pretty easy and super yummy.

I used ground beef in my recipe, but I'm sure chicken would work nicely. Also, according to my recipe the sauce is on the thick side, think thick cream gravy. If you'd like it a little thinner, just add some more milk. I also used the Cream of Mushroom soup and loved the addition of mushrooms.

Beef Enchiladas with Sour Cream Sauce

8 oz tub whipped cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
¾ Cup Milk
1 can Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken condensed soup
1 small can chopped fire-roasted green chilies, drained
½ tsp garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lb ground beef
2 cups shredded cheese, divided
14-16 small corn tortillas

Season and brown the ground beef with some chopped onion and garlic powder. I added some Pampered Chef Southwest seasoning to the meat , but taco seasoning would work well too. Drain the beef and stir in 1 ½ cup cheese until melted through and combined. Set aside.
Heat a half inch of oil in a small pan. Lightly fry the corn tortillas to soften them and then place on paper towels to drain.

Fill tortillas with beef, roll them up, and place seam-side down in greased 13x9 inch pan.

Meanwhile, place cream cheese, sour cream, milk, green chilies and seasonings in a medium saucepan. Heat until barely simmering over medium heat, stirring constantly. (Be careful, it will burn and stick on the bottom really easily) Pour hot sauce over the enchiladas. Cover with foil and bake in a 375 degree oven 20-30 minutes or until bubbly and heated through.
Top with remaining ½ cup cheese and serve when melted.

I got sidetracked and didn't stir the sauce the whole time. It ended up burning and sticking to the bottom of my saucepan. I was just careful not to scrape the burnt portion off when I poured it over the enchiladas and the sauce tasted great. Just don't forget to stir like I did :)

Have you all tried the Rice a Roni Mexican rice? It's delicious and tastes just like rice from a good Mexican restaurant. It went perfectly with this meal.

If you try it out, be sure to let me know if you like it. Enjoy!
