  • 1 can Tomato Sauce 15 oz
  • 1 can Green Chilies 4 oz, do not drain
  • 1 Tbsp Chili Powder
  • ½ tsp Cumin
  • ½ tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 2/3 cup Water
  • 12 Corn Tortillas
  • 1 ½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 ½ cup Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • Fresh Cilantro chopped


  • Place all the ingredients except for the water into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Then pour the mixture into a sauce pan and then heat over medium high heat.
  • Once the sauce is warm, gradually add in the water and stir until the sauce is the consistency that you prefer.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Pour a small amount of the homemade enchilada sauce on the bottom of a 9X13 baking pan.
  • Then dip the corn tortillas in the warm enchilada sauce.
  • Place the tortillas in a 9X13 baking pan. Top the tortilla with a small amount of each type of the shredded cheeses, roll it up and push it to the end of the pan.
  • Continue this process until your pan is full. Then pour the excess sauce over the top of the rolled tortillas and sprinkle the top with the remaining shredded cheese.
  • Then bake the enchiladas for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and slightly golden brown.
  • Top with the chopped fresh cilantro and enjoy!
