Green Chile, Cheese and Onion Enchiladas

 Enchiladas are one of my absolute favorite recipes.  
As a matter of fact, it was enchiladas that inspired me to create this blog in 2008.  

It has been very cold here in Dallas this past week.  On Wednesday, I got home from work, and was craving comfort food.  I was able to create these enchiladas with what I had in my fridge and pantry. 

I always keep a couple of cans of 
enchilada sauce and tortillas 
in the house. 

So, with a can of green chile enchilada sauce, some light sour cream, small can of green chiles, onion, cheddar cheese, and corn tortillas, I was able to whip these up in about 15 minutes + another 30 for cooking. 

There are so many ways to make enchiladas.  You just need  tortillas, cheese and a red or green enchilada sauce. You can add in veggies and meat. It's totally up to your personal taste (and what you have on hand)
