I do...& I don't care who knows. I'll scream it from the rooftops!
I LOOOOVE MEXICAN FOOOOOD!!
See...that's me, screaming from rooftops.
I'm sure most people would agree with me because I haven't met many people that do not enjoy meat & cheese rolled up in a tortilla. Mexican food is mostly some version of that right? I know for a fact everyone likes cheese dip & tortilla chips. If you don't, I don't think this relationship between you & I is going to work out. That's just crazy talk, not liking cheese dip, pssshhhh!
Anyway, cheese dip does not have a single thing to do with this recipe. I kind of got off on a tangent.
Back to the task at hand.
Burritos! Not just any burritos, burrito enchiladas. Why the two names you ask? It's pretty simple, they are just burritos covered in enchilada sauce & they are delicious.
And here's how ya make 'em...
Yes, I could just stop here & eat this & be happy. But there is so much more to come that makes it even more tasty.
Spread about 2 Tbsp of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of your dish.
Here comes the fun part.
I'm no tortilla rolling expert, but this was a pretty good attempt if I do say so myself. I cannot promise however, that the other four turned out as nicely as this one did. Just sayin'.
Place them in the oven at 400 degrees & bake for about 20 minutes to get the inside as melty & delicious as the outside. You may choose to bake them a little longer or a little less, it's up to you.
Garnish with sour cream & a few more green onions & serve.
Note: I know that I often say you can add or take away or basically do what you want with my recipes. That's because I want you to try them but I want you to adapt them to your taste. If your taste is the same as mine & you want to follow the directions to a tee, then please do so, I'm flattered that you might kinda wanna be like me. But if you change it up that's great. That's what cooking is all about experimenting & preparing delicious food & what is delicious to me may not be the same for you & vice versa. I just want us all to get along & cook good food.
