Enchilada tip

Those that know the Smith family, know that we LOVE enchiladas! Making them though can be time consuming and messy.

So here it know how it takes so long to fry the corn tortillas individually, but if you skip that step and just heat them in the microwave, you end up with really mushy enchiladas? My fabulous tip that I read is to take your corn tortillas and spray them individually with cooking spray/oil, put them on a cookie sheet and heat in a medium oven for a few minutes (like 3-4 minutes). The resulting tortillias will be softened and easy to work with and best of all, won't go all soggy. Saves time frying and maybe is a little healthier.

I tried it, and was pretty happy with my finished enchiladas....

Off to cook enchilada sauce!

What do you preheat the oven to?

Katie...I think it was preheated to 350 degrees. It doesn't really matter. Just don't cook them so long that they get crispy, just long enough to soften them so they'll roll without falling apart!
