Since I never use an actual recipe, everything is approximate and depending on how much filling is used, the quantity of enchiladas varies every time. Like I said before, I just make 'em until I run out of tortillas or the chicken mixture - whichever comes first. Normally, I try to buy at least 20+ tortillas so that I can make as much as the mixture will allow. But this time, I found myself all out of tortillas with chicken mixture remaining. I thought about freezing it for another time when I have more tortillas on hand. That would have worked great BUT I also remembered that I had some tortilla flour mix in the cabinet.
Here's what it looks like so you can pick some up at Walmart and make your own tortillas:
When I was a poor college student, I lived off this stuff! Seriously, ask my housemates. I would whip up a batch of tortillas and make some quesadillas. My cooking talent in college? Hmm... not so high so don't be intimidated - you can definitely make these! So today's recipe is sort of a combination between enchiladas and quesadillas.
Here's what I did:
1. Make the tortillas according to the package directions, let them rise and roll them out. (easy peasy)
2. Meanwhile, preheat a griddle to medium high.
3. I cooked the tortillas a couple minutes on each side.
4. Next, I returned them to the griddle adding a little leftover chicken mixture and shredded cheese.
5. Fold tortilla over and serve with chopped onion, tomato, lettuce, salsa and sour cream.
