Beef Enchiladas

Recipe From: Pioneer Woman
For The Sauce:
1 tbsp Canola Oil
1 tbsp Flour
1 can (28 Ounce) Enchilada Or Red Sauce
2 cups Chicken Broth
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Ground Black Pepper
2 tbsp Chopped Cilantro

For The Meat:
1-½ lb Ground Beef
1 Medium Onion (Finely Diced)
2 cans (4 Ounce) Diced Green Chilies
½ tsp Salt

For The Tortillas:
10 whole (to 14) Corn Tortillas
½ cups Canola Oil

To Assemble:
3 cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese
½ cup Black Olives (chopped)
1 cup Green Onions (chopped)
½ cup Cilantro (chopped)

In a large saucepan over medium heat, add oil and flour and whisk together to make a paste, cooking for one minute. Pour in the red sauce, chicken broth, cilantro, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30-45 minutes. Brown the meat with onions in a skillet. Drain off fat. Stir in 2 cans diced green chilies and seasoned salt. Set aside. Heat 1/2 cup canola oil in a small skillet over medium heat. One by one, using tongs, fry tortillas in oil until soft, not crisp – about 30 seconds per side. Remove to a paper—towel lined plate. Repeat until all tortillas have been fried. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour ½ cup red sauce in bottom of baking pan. Spread to even out. Dip each tortilla into red sauce, then remove to work surface. Spoon meat, a little grated cheese, a little black olives, and green onions in the center of tortilla. Roll up and place, seam down, in baking pan. Repeat until pan is filled. Pour extra red sauce over enchiladas. Top with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle cilantro over enchiladas before serving
