How to Soften Tortillas: Corn tortillas must be softened before rolling to prevent splitting. Place tortillas between 2 sheets of dampened paper towel. Microwave on HIGH for 45 seconds. Fill and roll tortillas while still warm.
Make Ahead: Assemble recipe as directed, cover. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. When ready to serve, uncover and bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until heated through.
Cheesy Bean Enchiladas: Substitute 1 (16-ounce) can refried beans for the browned ground beef. Mix with the onions and 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce, then use to fill enchiladas and bake as directed.
