Cook Ground beef in a pan till crumbly. If using chicken cook first and then cube. Add garlic powder and cumin to the cooking process. You can also add the bell pepper and onion if you like here and saute. Drain any fat from the meat, but keep the onions and peppers.
Pour the Enchillada sauce into a bowl and heat slightly in microwave. No need to be hot, just warmed a bit. Also time to warm up the tortilla's so they come apart easier.
With the meat cooled a bit, put 1 tablesppon meat in tortilla and wrap the meat with a teaspoon of the sauce, onion and peppers and cheese. Wrap them like a burrito. Lay them in a 5x9 cake pan. (the one for sheet cakes) Line them up down 2 rows, or across 3 I believe. Then put extra meat, onion, and pepper on top of enchillada's. Next pour the rest of the sauce on them spread it around evenly. Top with cheese and bake in oven at 350 for 30 min or until cheese is melted.
taste is great. Kids like it because it isnt hot just a bit spicy. You can add extra things like mushrooms, red peppers, banana peppers, cayenne, or anything you wish to spice it up a bit. I have used pepper jack cheese grated on top too.. wonderful
