Serves 2 | Prep Time 5 | Cook Time 20


Spray oil
4 (6-inch) corn tortillas
2/3 cup canned, red enchilada sauce
2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
1 cup warm taco meat filling (from Family Fiesta Soft Tacos recipe)
1/4 cup finely shredded sharp, Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro

Preheat oven to 375°F

Heat a large skillet over high heat. Spray with a thin film of oil and wipe out with a paper towel. Cook tortillas on both sides until blistered and soft, about 1 minute per side; keep warm.

While the tortillas are cooking, pour 1/4 cup enchilada sauce on a small plate, set aside. Pour 1/4 cup in a pie plate or small rectangular baking dish, about 6 x 10-inches, and mix the remaining sauce with the sour cream, set aside.

Mix the meat filling, cheese and cilantro in a medium mixing bowl.

To assemble: lay a tortilla in the plate of enchilada sauce and turn over. Fill with 1/4 cup of the meat mixture and roll up like a tight cigar. Place seam-side down in the sauce in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling. Pour the remaining 1/3 cup sauce mixed with sour cream over the enchiladas. Cover tightly with foil and bake until the sauce is bubbling, about 15 minutes.

Spice up dinnertime with a Mexican-style meal that’s chock full of taste and nutrition. Setting out the makings for Family Fiesta Soft Tacos and letting everyone in the family assemble their own is a fun way to let even young children feel like they’re “cooking.” The flavorful variations “up the ante” with some simple add-ons and preparations. With just a few additional ingredients the tried-and-true taco is transformed into a guacamole-topped tostada, an entrée-grade quesadilla, or a rich casserole of enchiladas.
