Description: This is a delicious, basic recipe...you could be very creative with it. Feel free to adjust the seasonings in the sauce to suit your taste.
Ingredients: Sauce ingredients:

2 Tablespoons Carbquick
4 ounces of tomato sauce (I use Cub Foods brand)
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 can of low sodium beef broth
Splenda (optional)

Other ingredients:

8 tortillas from Sherrie’s Tortilla recipe (less than one carb each) ( link: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=195365 )
8 ounces of shredded cheddar cheese
1 pound of cooked ground beef seasoned with Lindasue’s seasoning for tacos ( link: http://users3.ev1.net/~fontlady/seasoning_for_tacos.html )
How To Prepare: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make the sauce, whisk the Carbquick with a few tablespoons of oil in a medium sauce pan to form a loose paste over medium heat. Let it bubble while whisking for a minute or two. Then, SLOWLY whisk in the beef broth and the tomato sauce until the Carbquick mixture is fully incorporated and the sauce is smooth. Bring the sauce up to a low boil while stirring occasionally and then whisk in the spices. Turn the heat down to low and taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings to suit your taste. If you want to add a bit of sweetness, whisk in a bit of Splenda...if you think that the sauce needs salt, add salt. If you think that the sauce is too salty, adding a bit of Splenda will cut some of the saltiness. Set the sauce aside.

Spray a 9x13 pan with Pam spray. Put a couple of spoonfuls of sauce into the bottom of the pan just until the pan is covered. Mix 4 ounces of shredded cheddar into the seasoned meat. Carefully fill each tortilla with the hamburger mixture and put the rolled and filled tortillas into the pan. Pour enough sauce over the enchiladas to thoroughly cover. (extra sauce is good...much of the sauce will be absorbed by the tortillas while baking). Sprinkle the additional 4 ounces of cheese over the enchiladas and bake at 350 until the cheese is melted and the enchiladas are heated through and bubbly. Garnish with sour cream.
