Introduction: FAST & EASY ENCHILADAS
I have bought these frozen Delimex Taquitos for years, but if they are just warmed up, they are a little dry and need some jazzing up in the taste department. I came up with this recipe and refined it every time I made it until now I can fix it in 10 minutes, set it in the oven or propane outdoor grill, as I do, and it it goes from frozen to ready to eat in 40 minutes. If you thaw the taquitos in the microwave prior to placing them in the casserole dish, it just takes 30 minutes. Let's get started.
Step 1: INGREDIENTS
1 package of Delimex Taquitos from the frozen food section of Walmart. Tonight I used the corn tortillas filled with beef. They also have flour tortillas and both kinds filled with chicken. All are good, it's your choice.
1/2 of 1 white onion
Grated Cheddar cheese
Salsa, your choice again. I use WM's Great Value medium chunky salsa.
Step 2: FILL CASSEROLE DISH WITH TAQUITOS
Fill casserole dish with Taquitos. I use a 8" X 12" Pyrex glass dish which holds 15. , Use what you have. You cannot go wrong.
Step 3: COVER WITH MILK
Completely cover with milk. I ran out of milk or I would have used a little more.
Step 4: SPRINKLE ON CHOPPED ONION
Step 5: ADD CHEESE & SOUR CREAM
Sprinkle on grated mild cheddar cheese. Either Kraft or WM's Great Value brands. Nothing too strong.
Spoon on dollops of sour cream. Either Daisy or WM's GV.
Step 6: ADD THE SALSA
Spoon on the salsa. I buy WM's GV Medium Salsa, but there are other good brands.
At this point, you can blend the sour cream and salsa together to get a more uniform taste........or not.
Bake at 350F for 30 minutes. If your gas oven heats up the kitchen, do like I do and bake it in the outdoor propane grill. Sure it works.........I even bake cakes outside in the summer to keep from heating up the house.
Step 7: OLE !!! MUY BUENO
The Taquitos soak up nearly all of the milk and are really good and moist. It is even better the next day after being refrigerated overnight and microwaved the next day.
You can buy and cook some ground beef and use a package of tortillas, but this is much easier and cost is about the same. Try it, you'll like it.
