Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Cheese Enchiladas

Cheese Enchiladas.
Mmmm... just thinking about them makes my mouth water. 
I mean, what's not to love? You get all of that yummy, melty cheese with a little kick of spice from the sauce, and the corn tortilla to give it that awesome texture. Add in olives and onions, and you have perfection!
Just look at them.
I don't know about you, but despite my horrible photography skills, this pic makes me HUNGRY!
They are pretty easy to make, too!

I never measure when I make these, so everything is approximate. I'll tell you now, though, I do use the better part of a 2 lb block of cheese!

Cheese Enchiladas
What You Need:
A bunch of cheese, shredded- I like a nice sharp cheddar.
A large can of enchilada sauce- Las Palmas is our favorite. The mild variety has plenty of kick to it, so while we usually prefer medium spiced salsas, we stick to mild for this sauce. The medium is pretty fiery!
12-16 Small corn tortillas.
a medium onion, diced
a can of sliced black olives- or a big can of olives & slice them yourself. It only takes a couple of extra minutes & it is much more frugal!

What You Do:

  1. Have your olives sliced and in a bowl, ready for getting. Have your cheese all shredded and ready to grab. Saute up your shopped onion, just until it starts to get tender. Set that aside, in a bowl, too.
  2. Heat your sauce on low, just until heated. While the sauce is heating, heat your tortillas, one at a time, in a small pan. Place the heated tortillas in a tortilla warmer or on a plate, covered with a paper towel, foil, or a paper plate. Remove your sauce from the heat.
  3. Pour enough sauce in a 9x13 (or larger) baking dish to cover the bottom.
  4. Pour some of the sauce into a wide, shallow bowl or pie pan (you can add more later, if you run out).
  5. Get a clean, large plate for assembling the enchiladas. You should have everything set up and ready- the tortillas, sauce, cheese, onions, and olives- all ready for assembly.
  6. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Dip a tortilla in the sauce that you have in the pie pan, place it on the empty plate, put some cheese across the middle, top with a few chopped onions and a few sliced olives. Roll the tortilla, and place it seam side down in the baking dish. Repeat this with however many tortillas you can!
  8. Pour any remaining sauce over the entire pan of enchiladas. Sprinkle more cheese over the top, and top each enchilada with 3 or 4 olive slices.
  9. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is all melted in the centers.
  10. Remove pan and serve hot.
