"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Arlene Hanus


2 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
2 1/2 cups water
1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce
1-2 tbsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cumin
1 (4 oz.) can green chili peppers, diced and drained
1 tsp. oregano
Beef Filling:
1 large onion, chopped
1 lb. ground beef
Chili powder
10 8-inch flour tortillas or 8 10-inch flour tortillas
4 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
4 oz. Monterey cheese, shredded

To prepare enchilada sauce, in medium saucepan, combine sauce ingredients. Simmer 30 minutes. To prepare beef filling, in large skillet, cook ground beef and onion (you may sprinkle with additional chili powder) and drain. Add 3/4-cup enchilada sauce to meat and cook “low” 10 minutes or until sauce absorbed. To assemble enchiladas, in ungreased skillet, heat each tortilla low heat, for about 15 seconds per side, dip in sauce, fill with about 2 tbsp. beef filling and roll up; place seam side down in 12 x 8 inch baking dish. Cover enchiladas evenly with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with cheeses and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
