Really Yummy Enchiladas

We're having enchiladas for dinner tonight and it happens to be my favorite thing I can cook. So here's my recipe (technique would be more accurate).

Makes 8 servings (and leftovers are amazing)

You will need:

1 pkg McCormick's Enchilada Sauce mix (I've tried the cans of sauce, I like this powder better)
1 1/2 Cups water
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 lb. ground beef (sometimes I use shredded chicken, ground turkey would work, and plain cheese ones are good too)
8 (or so) tortillas (I use flour, corn or wheat would work)
lots of shredded cheddar cheese
1. Stir sauce mix water and tomato sauce in a medium size pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until a thickened (5 mins).

2. Brown the meat (I season it with salt, pepper, season-all), drain the fat. Stir in 1/2 cup of the sauce.

3. Grab a tortilla - spread a little sauce on in, put about 1/4 cup meat down the middle, add some cheese. Roll it up and place seam side down in a 9X13 dish (like a cake pan) Repeat for all tortillas. Pour remaining sauce (and any meat if you have it) over tortillas and top with more yummy cheese.

4. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes until cheese is bubbly.

Other option: Sometimes I make a box of Rice a Roni Spanish rice and put rice in the tortillas, also, olives are great in and on these. Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top. You can double the batch and freeze a pan, 2 great dinners in one shot.
