So the other day I found myself in the predicament once again. It was late and hubby and I were both pretty hungry. After scouring through the fridge, freezer and the cupboard I came up with a decision to improvise.
THREE INGREDIENTS is all it took for my CHEATER ENCHILADAS!!!
Frozen Beef Taquitos
Your favorite salsa
I mean....what is an enchilada except some sort of tortilla, sauce and cheese, right???
The first ones I made in the electric skillet....added a little oil to the bottom to prevent sticking. Made one layer of taquitos (I think I used 10), Covered it with Salsa. Covered that with cheese. Put the lid on and cooked on Med-High until cheese was melted and it was heated through. The taquitos turned out pretty crunchy on the bottom this way....but I kind of liked them. If you want to avoid crunchy just put some salsa on the bottom of the skillet before putting the taquitos down.
|please excuse the sight of the well used skillet!!! It sure does help to keep the house from heating up!!!|
You can also make them in the microwave. Just put your desired number of taquitos on a microwave safe plate or dish, Cover with Salsa and Cheese. Heat until bubbly. (my microwave took only 2 minutes to make this plate of two!!)
Hubby was pleasantly surprised by how good they tasted!! Paired with a little salad or your favorite "Mexican" side dish and you have a super quick and tasty meal!!
Hope this helps you out when you are in a pinch to fix something quick to feed yourself or your family!!
