The amen burger enchiladas were born one very cold Sunday. We decided to have burgers for dinner. We realized that we did not have hamburger buns but did have tortilla wraps. With a bit of praying and a bit of imagination I came up with the recipe for the Amen Burger Enchiladas. As with most recipes I make on the fly, I wait patiently for my wife to say “This is a make again”. And she did.
Ground beef, cheese, and tomatoes
Brown the ground beef in a medium skillet with the salt and pepper. Once browned, drain off the grease. Next, add the drained tomatoes and shredded cheese and combine well. The mixture needs to be warm enough for the cheese to start to melt. You can use whatever cheese you like. Cheddar, mozzarella, havarti, swiss, the list goes on!
Rolling and baking the enchiladas
Place about 1/2 cup, or more, of the filling into a tortilla and roll them up. Place the rolled up tortillas, seam side down, into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Spray just a bit of oil on top of the tortillas before baking. Bake at 350 degrees F or until cheese has melted to your liking.
In the picture above the mustard and ketchup are put on separately. After we had that I thought it would be great to mix ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise. The mix made a nice topping. We also put on banana peppers, diced pickles, diced onions, all the things you like on a hamburger…or cheeseburger!
The amen burger enchiladas are great the next day for lunch or dinner. We have eaten them cold or hot. Other ideas I have yet to try is a cheese sauce on top! USe your imagination and make it your own! This recipe would go great with the strawberry almond salad. The contrast of sweet and savory is delicious!
