  • 1 pkg corn tortillas

  • 3 sprigs cilantro, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 375.

  2. Brown beef in a medium skillet. Drain the beef and then add the enchilada seasoning. Stir until well coated.

  3. Warm tortillas in the microwave (on a plate covered with a wet paper towel for 30 -60 seconds). This makes the tortillas easier to work with.

  4. In a large bowl mix beef, jalapeno, corn, and cheese (save a little cheese for the top of the enchiladas).

  5. Fill tortillas with equal amounts of beef mixture and roll up the tortilla. Place the tortilla seam side down on a greased baking sheet.

  6. Pour the enchilada sauce over the tortillas  and sprinkle the remaining cheese.

  7. Bake 12-15 minutes.

  8. Serve with Mexican rice and sour cream!
