Making enchiladas for the freezer is a great resource to
have on hand. I am not freezing
these with the sauce on them as not only does it take it a lot of freezer space
to have pans of enchiladas in the freezer but the tortillas can get soggy after
they are cooked and that is not real appealing. Here is how I do this..
Cook the hamburger and onion until the onion is soft and the meat is no longer
pink. Add the beans and spices and stir to combine.
After the filling was done I softened my tortillas in a little coconut oil. I
also grated 1lb of cheddar cheese. Once all these ingredients were ready it
was time to make enchiladas..
I put a spoonful of filling and a little cheese on each tortilla
I rolled it up and carefully laid it, seam side down, on a tray..
I continued to do this until the tray was full…
When all was done this mixture filled 60 (5 dozen) tortillas..
I put the trays in the freezer to flash freeze. After they are frozen I will
put them in freezer bags and can pull out as many as needed for a meal.
When I make enchiladas I put the filled tortillas (frozen) in a 9x13 pan and
then cover them with enchilada sauce. You can find my enchilada sauce recipe
http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/enchiladasauce1.htm I sprinkle grated
cheddar cheese over the top and bake at 350 until everything is hot and
bubbly. This may take 45 minutes or so using frozen enchiladas.
