Original recipe makes 4



Preheat oven to 400F

Pour canned beef, tomatoes, cilantro and cumin into medium pan (DO NOT drain). Mash up beef so it appears shredded.

Simmer over medium heat until most of the liquid is evaporated. (approx. 20-25 min.)

Warm refried beans in a small dish.

Warm Flower Tortillas in microwave for one min. with package opened.

Build encheladas one at a time.

Spread one BIG teaspoon of refried beans on one edge of each tortilla; fill with one tablespoon of meat/tomatoe mixture and about a teaspoon full of cheese.
