- In a large skillet over medium-low heat, sauté beef, salt to taste, hot pepper flakes to taste and enchilada sauce until meat is warmed through; set aside and keep warm.
- To serve tacos, place meat, onions, cilantro and sour cream in separate serving bowls. Serve with warm tortillas.
- For individual servings, place meat mixture on tortilla and top with a heaping teaspoon marinated onions, a pinch of cilantro and a dab of sour cream.

- Cj’s tip: (1) I made half a recipe for two of us and had leftovers (good husband breakfast).
- (2) The enchilada sauce made for a very wet meat filling; I drained it in a sieve before serving. (I added the drained off enchilada sauce to a soup the next day – very good!)
- Wine served: a friend recommended a new drink for us – Framboise Lambic Beer, which is a Belgian malt beverage with raspberries added. It’s a dry sparkling drink that matched perfectly with the tacos. Surprising, but it did!
