  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 poblano peppers, diced
  • 1 lb. ground beef, turkey or chicken
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups (16 oz) mozzarella, divided
  • 1 28oz can of red enchilada sauce
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large frying pan, heat the oil to medium high. Add the onions, pepper and ground meat of choice with salt and pepper.

Pour enough enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish to cover the bottom.

Pour the rest of the sauce in a large bowl. Dip tortillas, one at a time, in the bowl to coat with sauce.

Combine the onion, pepper, meat mixture, half the cheese and enchilada sauce into each tortilla. Roll each one and place in the baking dish. Sprinkle leftover sauce and cheese on top of enchiladas.

Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
