Homemade Enchiladas

My mom has made this recipe for years! It's SO good and I think it's all in the sauce. It's more an enchilada casserole, I put mine in a 9x13 Pyrex dish. What you'll need:

1 pkg of corn tortillas
1-2lbs of ground beef or shredded chicken (works either way)
1 chopped onion
3 cups of chicken broth
2 Tbsp of minced garlic
2-4 Tbsp of olive oil
4 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp oregano
1-2 cans of tomato sauce
Salt & pepper

First, pour olive oil in pan. Then, sauté the garlic and onion. Once soft add chicken broth and remaining ingredients. Let simmer.

Next, brown your ground beef or cook your chicken through and shred. Once both are complete grab your tortillas and dip them in your sauce and add your meat and roll, (you can add some shredded cheddar if you like the cheese) repeat until your pan is full. Your tortillas WILL fall apart, but that's ok in the end result! Then you'll pour your remaining sauce on top. And top with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 until bubbly and enjoy!!!!!

Pair with homemade pinto beans. Put them on to boil. Let them get soft and add some mild Rotel and cumin as wel as salt and pepper. YUM!!!
