Here's a fun recipe from my family cookbook. It came from my great-aunt's daughter....so...some kind of cousin but I'm not sure if she's a second or third or removed or what. I never can keep that stuff straight. Anyway.....this was so good.....and a BIG hit in our house! It was really fun and different. I tweaked the recipe a little bit to suit our tastes but it's essentially the same as the original. Yummy! You can use homemade enchilada sauce or use store bought..whatever floats your boat. I used Trader Joe's brand which I had never used before but really liked. Long story short: make it, eat it...enjoy!
1 pound ground beef
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 cup onion ~ diced
1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce ~ divided use

with another flour tortilla and repeat with remaining meat mixture,

the last flour tortilla on top and pour remaining 1/2 cup of enchilada
