Almost Famous Enchiladas
Over the weekend we had a little fiesta, complete with all the fixin's to accompany another Badger game. The menu included tacos (mostly for the kids), fajitas, and my almost famous enchiladas. I tweaked the enchiladas this time and they were amazing! Here's the recipe:

3/4 of an onion, finely diced
Old El Paso Mild Enchilada Sauce
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Shredded Pepperjack Cheese
large flour tortillas
1 can refried beans
1 cup cooked minute rice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the hamburger. I either brown 2 pounds (for parties) or 1 pound (just for us). As the hamburger is finishing, add the onion and cook until it is soft and translucent. When done, remove excess grease and return hamburger and onion to frying pan. Add enchilada sauce. The amount will depend upon how much hamburger is in the pan. I start with one cup and adjust up from there. Next, add two handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese to the pan and allow contents to melt and marry. Spray Pam in a 9x13 inch casserole dish. Take out your tortillas and prepare the other ingredients on the counter. You will need an opened can of refried beans, the cooked rice, pepperjack cheese, and more cheddar cheese. Hold a tortilla in one hand and spoon approximately 1/4 cup of meat down the center of the tortilla. Next to the meat, line up 2-3 tablespoons of refried beans. Over the top of this, spoon 2-3 tablespoons of rice. Sprinkle with cheddar and pepperjack cheese. Roll up enchilada and place in dish. Repeat until casserole dish is full. Sprinkle all enchiladas with more cheese and bake for 30-35 minutes.
