Need a good recipe for beef enchiladas or beef enchilada casserole. I am sure I am not the only one that would appreciate your recipes. Thanks in advance.

Your wish is my command.

Clyde's Enchiladas.

1 TBS Lard or Shortening
1 lb Ground beef (ground round)
3 TBS Flour
1 8oz can Tomato sauce
2 TBS Chili powder (Gebhardts is best)
Salt -- to taste
3/4 tsp Garlic powder
12 Corn Tortillas
1 lb longhorn Cheese coarsely grated
1 lg Onion, chopped fine
Melt shortening in heavy skillet. Add the ground meat and brown. Sprinkle meat with flour; mix in skillet. Add tomato sauce and 1 cup water. Mix 1/2 cup water with the chili powder to form a smooth paste; add to the meat mixture. Add salt to taste and garlic powder. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, until it is of gravy consistency. Cover and simmer over very low heat. Add more water if the chili gravy becomes too thick.
Dip tortillas one at a time in the hot chili gravy with a wide metal spatula. The tortillas will become pliable almost immediately, which will make rolling the enchiladas easier. Soaking too long will cause the tortillas to fall apart.
Place a good sprinkling of grated cheese and minced onion and about a tablespoon of the meat mixture to one side of the center of the tortilla. Roll tortilla tightly around the filling and place loose side down in a glass casserole baking dish. For best results place the enchilidas in a row with sides touching.
When all enchiladas have been formed, pour the remaining hot chili gravy over all, and sprinkle generously with grated cheese, and top with chopped onion. Bake at 350 degrees F until the cheese is melted.

Do we need to drain the fat off the meat after browning??

Actually, no. In this case, the fat and juice from the meat is the start of your gravy.

Think of it like sausage gravy. You need the fat for the roux.

That sounds outstanding Katt. We always just make chicken enchiladas due to ease of prep but will have to try that.
