TEXAS CHEESE ENCHILADAS

Category:    Chili
Yield:4 servings
 
     12 ea Corn tortillas                      2    Hortening (lard best)
      4 tb Cooking oil                         2    Lour
      2 ea Yellow onions, large, choppe        2    Hile powder or ground
      4 c  Grated cheese---either Longh   
 
  Allow  3 enchiladas per person.   Use a Pyrex utility pan (13-1/2"   x
  8-3/4")  to cook them.   Lightly grease the utility pan (for authenti- city
  use lard).  Preheat the oven to 400.
   Chop  onions and grate cheese.   Saute the onions lightly in 2 T. oil.
   Melt lard in a skillet;  stir in the flour and make a light roux.  Add
  ground chiles or chile powder, water and  salt,  and cook until thick.
   Of commercial chile powders,  Gebhardt's from San Antonio is best, but not
  as good as ground *chiles pasillas*.
   Heat the remaining oil in a skillet.   Using kitchen tongs,  dip  each
  tortilla in hot oil until well softened (about 15 seconds).  Hold tor-
  tilla  up  and  allow oil to drip back into the skillet.    Using  the
  tongs, dip tortillas in chili gravy.   Place the tortilla in the Pyrex pan,
  put a good-sized pinch of cheese and onions in the middle,   and roll the
  tortilla,  placing the flap side down.   Continue filling and rolling
  tortillas until the pan is full.  Pour more chili gravy on top of the
  enchiladas,   sprinkle the top generously  with  more  grated cheese, and
  pop into preheated oven.   Cook only until  the  cheese begins to bubble
  (about 10 minutes).  Serve immediately.
