Super Easy Cheese Enchiladas Recipe



Serves one

  • 3 corn tortillas

  • 3 slices of cheddar cheese (I typically use Organic Valley Sliced Cheddar Cheese)

  • 1/2 cup red enchilada sauce (or green enchilada sauce, if you prefer – I typically use 505 Red Chile Sauce, which I order from Albuquerque, NM)

*Optional additions:

  • ¼ cup chopped white onion

  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

  • Sour cream (room temperature)

  • Fried egg


  1. On a microwave-safe plate, place one tortilla and top with one slice of cheddar cheese, (optional) one tablespoon of chopped onion, and one tablespoon of enchilada sauce.

  2. Place second tortilla on top and repeat the steps above.

  3. Place third tortilla on top and repeat. Finish with the rest of the enchilada sauce.



4. Place plate in the microwave for 1.5 minutes. Check the enchiladas and return to microwave for 1 to 1.5 more minutes. Remove and enjoy!


5. (Optional) In a separate bowl, combine ¼ cup of sour cream with 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro. Stir to mix ingredients, and then place a dollop atop enchiladas.

6. (Optional) Prepare one fried egg. Place atop enchiladas for a delicious breakfast (or dinner)!

7. Enjoy and bon appetit!
