Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup soft cream cheese
  • 4 6-inch corn tortillas
  • 3/4 pound ground beef or pork
  • 8 ounces can stewed tomatoes
  • 4 ounces can diced green chile peppers
  • 1/2 cup enchilada sauce, mild
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese, Mexican style

Preparation:

Spread about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese onto each tortilla; fold tortillas in half. Set aside.

In a 1 1/2 quart microwaveable casserole dish, crumble the ground beef or pork. Microwave, covered, on high for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 minutes, until no pink remains, stirring once. Drain off fat.

Stir in undrained tomatoes, undrained chilis, enchilada sauce, and cumin. Cook, covered, on high for 5 to 7 minutes or until heated through. Spoon about three quarters of the meat mixture into a 2-quart microwave safe baking dish. Arrange folded tortillas on top of the meat mixture. Spoon remaining meat and tomato mixture over the tortillas.

Cover with wax paper and cook on high for 3 to 5 minutes, or until heated through. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Serves 4.

Don't taste like I thought it would., Member LindseyAnne

Not much flavor. I was expecting something more like mexican food and it just wasn't right. The recipe takes forever to make and It really wasn't worth it.
