There's a terrible rumor going around that enchiladas are hard to make; a notion that has prevented thousands upon thousands of potentially amazing and easy meals from ever making it to the dinner table.  It's a shame.  We are on a mission to dispel that myth and reveal the truth about how easy it is to make homemade enchiladas.

You will be pleasantly surprised to learn that making homemade enchiladas from scratch only takes a few steps and easy to customize according to taste.  All you will really need are 8-10 cooked tortillas, your favorite filling (meat, beans, veggies), sauce, cheese, and a few minutes to roll it together and bake.

Like any other great dish, good enchiladas start with fresh ingredients and really, really good tortillas.  Most traditional enchilada recipes call for corn tortillas, but flour tortillas will work just fine.

TORTILLA TIP: Warm tortillas are easier to fill and roll. Always cook them first.
