How to make it

  • Chili Gravy:
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Stir in the flour and continue stirring for 3 to 4 minutes, or until it makes a light brown roux. Add all the dry ingredients and continue to cook for 1 minute, constantly stirring and blending ingredients. This browns fast so don't over do or you will have a very burnt tasting gravy.
  • Add chicken broth or water, mixing and stirring until the sauce thickens.
  • Turn heat to low and let sauce simmer for 15 minutes or so. Add water to adjust the thickness. Pull off heat to cool.
  • For the Cheese Enchiladas:
  • Preheat the oven to 450.
  • Pour the oil in a small skillet, and heat the tortillas one at a time quickly just to soften. Keep them wrapped in a cloth until all are heated.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of chili gravy in a baking pan.
  • Take a tortilla, put 1/4 cup of cheese and 1 tablespoon of onion in the center and roll it.
  • Place rolled tortilla in baking dish, seam side down.
  • Continue with remaining tortillas.
  • Take remaining chili gravy, and pour it over the rolled tortillas.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese and onions on top.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted. Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving with refried bean and rice.

    This recipe is AWESOME!! I'm still cooking it since I started back when I came across it. For the kids' bdays they request them. My family wants them at least once every two weeks. We have moved 70 miles away from home since I found this recipe and we have a friend that drives down to eat them and so we have to let him know ahead of time that we are cooking it otherwise he gets upset. So, you should REALLY try this out if someone is willing to drive 70 miles to eat it.

    Well I made this dish and it is the best recipe I've found on here so far!! It was perfect and the crowd at my home loved it!! I made this recipe X 4 and came out with around 35 enchiladas. I've got a pan left over to take to my best friend's home tomorrow and Barbara is looking so forward to it.

    Thanks so much for posting a wonderful recipe that will become a frequent meal for our large family. It is simply excellent tasting comfort food at it's finest!
