Beef Enchiladas

These are the enchiladas my Mom made for us growing up that we loved. The sauce is made from a Lawry's seasoning packet instead of the kind already made in a can which is much better. The enchiladas are pretty easy to put together and full of flavor. I recommend serving this with a salad as a side. Homemade ranch dressing or the Hidden Valley packet kind tastes great with the spiciness of the sauce. Enjoy!

Beef Enchiladas
Chelsey W. 

1-11/2 lbs ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 pint sour cream
8-10 flour tortillas
Lawry's Enchilada seasonings packet
1 can of tomato paste (as called for on seasonings packet)
about 3 c shredded cheddar cheese

Make enchilada sauce according to package directions. Brown the ground beef adding in the diced onion. Season beef with a little seasoning salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Drain off any excess grease. Stir in about a cup of sour cream to cooked beef. Coat the bottom of a 9x13 pan with enchilada sauce. In the center of each tortilla layer some meat, shredded cheese, and a spoonful of sauce. Roll up the tortilla and add to the pan. There should be enough meat for 8-10 tortillas which should fit snuggly in the pan. Pour the remaining sauce over the top of the tortillas, then cover with shredded cheese. Poke some toothpicks in the top of the tortillas (so cheese won't stick to top) and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min or until cheese melts and sauce is bubbling. Serve with extra sour cream and a side salad with ranch dressing.
