How to make it

  • In a medium saucepan, brown the meat with the onion and garlic. Drain the grease.
  • Add bacon drippings, if desired, and return the pan to the heat. When the bacon drippings have melted, add the cumin, oregano, salt and chili powder and beef stock.
  • Simmer the mixture for about 50 minutes, until the meat is tender and the liquid has thickened slightly.
  • In a small bowl, mix the Masa Harina (I use cornstarch) with 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid, and stir the mixture back into the gravy.
  • Simmer the gravy for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Serve with enchiladas, tamales or other dishes.
  • Filling:
  • In a skillet, fry the ground beef with the onion until the meat is gray. Pour off grease.
  • Add stock, corn, green chile and salt.
  • Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. T
  • he filling can be made ahead and refrigerated for a day.
  • Reheat the filling before proceeding
  • Enchiladas:
  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a medium baking dish.
  • Heat 1/2 to 1 inch of oil in a small skillet until the oil ripples.
  • With tongs, dunk a tortilla in the oil long enough for it go to limp, just a few seconds.
  • Don't let the tortilla turn crisp.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas and drain them.
  • With tongs, dip a tortilla in the gravy liquid to lightly coat it.
  • Lay the tortilla on a plate, sprinkle about 4 tablespoons of filling over it, and roll it up snugly.
  • Transfer the enchilada to the baking dish. repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  • Top the enchiladas with the remaining chili gravy, making sure that each enchilada is submerged in the sauce.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the enchiladas are heated through and the sauce is bubbly.
  • Remove the dish from the oven and sprinkle immediately with cheese, onion and jalapeno.
  • Serve hot, using a spatula.
