    SOUTHWESTERN ENCHILADAS- Not sure who posted these here many years ago

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    1 & 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 can (16 oz.) refried beans
    1 small can chopped green chilies, drained
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1/2 envelope of taco seasoning (if you want a
    little more flavor)
    10 (6") corn tortillas, softened according to
    package directions.

    In a saucepan, brown ground beef, stirring to
    crumble. Drain if needed. Add onions and cook
    to soften. Stir in beans, seasonings and green
    chilies. Set aside.

    4 tablespoons margarine
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    2 cups whole milk
    1 (10 oz.) can enchilada sauce (mild, medium or hot)
    1 & 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

    Melt margarine in a saucepan. Stir in flour until
    smooth. Add milk and enchilada sauce,
    stirring until smooth. Add cheese and olives; stir
    over medium-high heat until mixture begins to bubble.

    Place 1/3 cup filling on each softened tortilla.
    Roll up and place seem side down in a 13x9x2
    inch pan (lightly greased).
    Pour sauce over enchiladas. Bake for 30 minutes.

    Note: I also made 6 cheese enchiladas and added them to the pan. I just bought some shredded cheeses and filled 6 10' corn tortillas.

    Another NOTE: I dipped the corn tortillas in the warm sauce to soften them even more. It was a messy process, but they were delicious.

      Is there enough sauce to accommodate another 6 (cheese) enchiladas? This sounds delish!!
