  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 lb. cooked meat of choice we used our favorite easy carne asada recipe
  • 2 C cheese shredded
  • 1/2 C enchilada sauce


To make enchiladas:

  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • Lightly grease the bottom of a casserole dish.
  • Cover the bottom of the dish with 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce.
  • Next, roll the enchiladas–placing some cheese and meat in the center of a corn tortilla. 
  • Fold the side over and place the enchilada seam side down in the pan. Continue until your pan is full.
  • Spread the remaining 3/4 cup of enchilada sauce over the enchiladas and top with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake the enchiladas for 20-25 minutes until the cheese is melted and kind of crispy. Garnish with cilantro and serve.



Note: To make the enchiladas the proper fix portions use the red and blue container to measure out the meat and cheese before filling the enchiladas. Use 1 red container of meat to make 2 enchiladas, and 1 blue container to stuff 4 enchiladas.
21 Day Fix Container Counts: For 2 enchiladas, 1 Y, 1R, 1B. If you choose to count the homemade sauce, add 1/2Y.
