  • 2.2 qt casserole dish. Use a paper towel or pastry brush to coat the dish with the oil. Pour 1 cup sauce into the bottom of the prepared dish and spread to cover. Use 4 tortillas to cover the sauce. Take 1 additional tortilla, tear in half, and the tear 1 half into 3 pieces Use the pieces to cover up any gaps where sauce is showing. Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese over the tortillas. Sprinkle 1/2 of the onions and 1/2 of the scallions over the cheese. Repeat with remaining tortillas, another cup of sauce, another 1/3 of the cheese and the onions and scallions. Cover with the remaining sauce and the rest of the cheese.Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes Sprinkle cilantro over enchiladas and serve. I like this dish with a crisp green salad tossed only with seasoned rice vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Some people top their enchiladas with sour cream...I am not a fan (dilutes the taste too much for me) but, if you like...feel free. :)
