Step 1

Brown ground beef over medium-low heat. Drain meat to remove any excess drippings. Add in salt, pepper and garlic powder; continue cooking until spices are combined with the beef. Mix in 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce into brown meat and stir until well-combined.


Step 2

Preheat oven to 350º F.

Step 3

Pour 1/2 cup enchilada sauce into the bottom of a 9x13 oven-safe, casserole dish.

Step 4

Drizzle oil into the bottom of a skillet over a medium-low heat. Add corn tortillas, one at a time, and cook for about 1 minute each (DO NOT not allow to become crispy).

Step 5

Separate the cooked beef mixture into 8 even portions.

Step 6

Drain 1 tortilla, then layer on beef, sour cream, shredded cheese (using how much you like but save at least 2 cups to sprinkle on top) and cilantro. Roll tortilla to keep all ingredients inside. Then place seam side down in the casserole dish. Repeat with remaining 7 tortillas.

Step 7

Once all enchiladas have been assembled and placed into casserole dish, pour remaining enchilada sauce over to make sure well covered. Top with remaining cheese.

Step 8

Place in oven and bake 15-20 minutes, or until cheese has fully melted.

Step 9

Remove from oven and top with additional cilantro, if desired.
