Methods/steps
To prepare enchilada sauce, in medium saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Simmer 30 minutes. To prepare beef filling, in large skillet, cook ground beef and onion (you may sprinkle with additional chili powder) and drain. Add 3/4-cup enchilada sauce to meat and cook “low” 10 minutes or until sauce absorbed. To assemble enchiladas, in ungreased skillet, heat each tortilla low heat, for about 15 seconds per side, dip in sauce, fill with about 2 tbsp. beef filling and roll up; place seam side down in 12 x 8 inch baking dish. Cover enchiladas evenly with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with cheeses and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
