Day to Day Adventure: Enchildadas

Tuesday, January 18, 2011


Every woman should have a recipe that is a no-fail.  It can be easy or hard but always delicious.  This is the one you pull out for company.  My family loves pretty much any form of rice, beans & cheese.  This recipe is easily doubled for a crowd pleaser. 

Recently I got fed up with trying to pick the “perfect” tortilla.  I mean I know that the white flour tortillas aren’t the greatest for us but how to tell the difference between all the varieties.  One day I started looking for recipes on-line and one of my favorite blogs, Heavenly Homemakers, had a recipe I had to try.  She has an e-book that gives her recipes.  These are really filling and it decreases the number of enchilada’s each person will want plus the taste is wonderful!  I use white whole wheat flour and that seems to make them a little lighter.  They freeze well for later use if you decide to make a BIG batch.  Enjoy!



4 Tbsp butter

5 Tbsp-1/2 cup chili powder

1/3 cup flour

1/2 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp cumin

1/4 tsp oregano

2 C chicken broth

1 (8oz) tomato sauce

Melt butter in pan.  In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.  In another bowl or measuring cup, mix broth & tomato sauce.  Slowly add to butter & mix as you go.  Stir constantly and it will be come crumbly.  Very slowly, add broth mix and you will have a thick, tasty sauce.  You can pour this in a slow cooker or use it right away.


10-12 wheat tortillas

2 cans refried beans

2-3 cups shredded cheese

We do the tortilla part of this in an assembly line.   Lay out all the tortillas.  Heat beans in microwave & then place about 2-3 T beans on tortilla.  Smooth out over whole tortilla & sprinkle with cheese.  Roll tortilla up & place in a 9x13 baker.  Repeat for each tortilla & then top with sauce, more cheese & sliced olives if desired.

Serve with shredded lettuce, sour cream & brown rice.


  1. yummy! I've sampled your enchaladas, so I KNOW how good they are!
    Where do you get your white ww tortillas? I've not been happy with the ones I've tried, and my ww homemade just don't cut it.

    Sounds like your recovery is coming along nicely - praying for a good report tomorrow from the doc.

  2. That is so funny! I forgot that I have brought these to your house. I have been making Tortillas with white whole wheat flour. I can send you the recipe directly. Alternately there is a wheat tortilla at mosers that we like to use when I can't make them(like now HA!)

    Thanks so much for the prayers!
