Preheat oven to 350° degrees. In a 13×9 baking dish add ¼ cup of the enchilada sauce to bottom of pan to light coat. Add 6 tortillas to cover the dish. Add 1/2 of the filling mixture and spread evenly. Add 1/4 cup o cheese to lightly spread across mixture. Add another layer of 6 tortillas and the remaining meat mixture (no cheese on this layer).

Bake for 35-40 minutes in a 350° degrees oven. Let rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Very good with sides of sour cream, guacamole, and chopped lettuce.
