We've got the whole enchilada for you. This mouthwatering Mexican favorite is stuffed with cheese and ground beef. It brings the border to you.
1 (14 1/2 oz.) can of whole tomatoes
1 small onion, cut into pieces
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (6 oz.) can of tomato paste
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
9 corn tortillas
To prepare the sauce, place the whole canned tomatoes, the liquid from the tomatoes, the onion, and the garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend. Pour into a medium saucepan. Add the cayenne, salt, and tomato paste. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. Place 1/3 of the tortillas in the bottom of the crock-pot and spoon over 1/3 of the ground beef, 1/3 of the sauce, and 1/3 of the cheddar in layers. Repeat each layer twice more. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
