We really enjoy Beef and Cheese Enchiladas at our house. If you do not like onions or not a fan of spicy you may omit the onions and green chilies. You may use flour or corn tortillas,make half flour and half corn to make everyone happy! Hope you enjoy this favorite Mexican recipe.

Ingredients needed:
1 pound lean ground beef
1-10 ounce package cheddar cheese, grated
1 onion, chopped
12-15 flour or corn tortillas

Sauce ingredients:
½ cup butter or margarine
3 tablespoon flour
2 cups milk
1-8 ounce Velveeta cheese
1-4 ounce can green chilies, chopped
1 cup American cheese, grated

Brown ground beef in a skillet.
Drain well and set aside.
Sauté onion with beef or use raw.
Place 2 tablespoons meat in a flour or corn tortilla; sprinkle with cheese and onion.
If you use corn tortillas, dip in hot grease for 1 minute on each side, so they will be more pliable.
Roll up tight and place in slightly greased 13-inch x 9-inch x 2-inch pan with seam side down.
Cover with sauce.

Sauce directions:
Melt margarine in a saucepan; add flour.
Gradually add milk, cooking until slightly thick.
Add cheese and green chilies.
Pour sauce over filled tortillas.
Cover with grated American cheese, cover with foil and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.

Chicken may be substituted for ground beef.
Makes about 12 to 15 enchiladas.
