User: nnss

Yield: 4 servings

Categories: main dish, mexican

amount unit name
12 ea corn tortillas
4 T oil or lard
1 ea clove garlic
1 T flour
4 C green chili sauce
1 ea salt to taste
2 C grated cheddar or jack chees
1/4 C minced onion


Fry tortillas in fat to soften. Heat garlic in oil then discard
garlic. Blend flour into oil. Stir in green chili sauce and heat
thoroughly. If mixture is too thick, add water. Add salt to taste.
Layer tortillas with sauce, minced onion and cheese on oven-proof
plates. Sprinkle cheese on top. Use 3 tortillas for each serving.
Place in oven to allow cheese to melt. NOTE: For a real New
Mexican touch place a poached or fried egg on top. The egg seems to
help meld the flavors.
