I’ve got a soft spot for enchiladas. I really flip for the flour tortilla tex-mex enchiladas that are slathered in cheese and some kind of weakly flavored watery tomato sauce.
When I saw some enchilada sauce cans at Big Lots for $0.50 a can, I snapped up a couple. They usually retail around $0.79 at their cheapest. Being a cheapskate food hoarder, how could I resist?
I couldn’t justify buying flour tortillas when I had tons of masa harina at home, so I made a bunch of corn tortillas, let them soften up, and made a filling.
I poured another can over the top, then covered the pan with tin foil and popped it in the oven for 20 mintutes.
Foil came off the last 10 minutes and I sprinkled with some feta. It was the only cheese in my fridge, but I think it works with Mexican food.
Overall, it was alright, but nothing I’m jonesing to make again. It was a little something different using the stuff in our pantry. Some meat filling would have made these way better.
Overall, I’d say this entire pan cost about $3.50 to make. It’ll last the two of us at least 2 meals.
