Chorizo Enchiladas

If you like it spicy, these are for you.

12 corn tortillas
1 pound chorizo diced
1/2 white onion chopped
1/2 cup chopped roasted and peeled green chilies
2 cups red chili enchilada sauce
2-1/2 cups grated pepper jack cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place tortillas on a lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 5 minutes then set aside.

In large heavy skillet over medium high heat fry chorizo until it is no longer pink. Add onion and continue to fry for 5 minutes.

Stir in chilis and sauce then remove from heat.

Oil a square baking dish. Place 4 tortillas in baking dish and top with 1/3 of the chorizo mix and 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat to more times then bake for 35 minutes.

What did the family think? Hubby and I really liked this, but I am glad I had some sour cream on hand to add to it after it came out of the oven to help tone down the spiciness. I had the boys try it, but even our youngest who loves spicy said it was too hot.
