Tinfoil Chef: "Helping Hand Enchiladas"
Welcome again to "Tinfoil Chef " where I'd like to feature healthy recipes for square meals on meager pockets.

Hamburger Helper is an economical product when ever you're in a pinch, but I find the box meals to be a little on the cheesy side. That's cheesy as in terribly bland type of way that needs to be spruced up a notch to give it a fancy appearance and taste.

- 1lb Ground Hamburger or Turkey
- 1 Box of Hamburger Helper Cheesy Enchilada
- 2 cups Hot Water
- 1 1/4 cup of Milk
- 8 flour tortillas
- 1 jar of Enchilada sauce
- 2 cups of shredded Monty Jack Cheese
- 1 can of Black Olives
- 1 pint of Sour Cream
- 1 bag of shredded lettuce

Brown ground burger or turkey in skillet over medium heat and drain. Prepare Hamburger Helper according to package directions and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350. Spritz some non-stick cooking spray in a 9 x 13" pan and cover with about 1/4 of the jar of Enchilada sauce. Roll up 1/8th of the Hamburger Helper mixture in each tortilla, laying side by side in the pan. Cover with remaining Enchilada Sauce. Sprinkle the top with the 2 cups of Shredded Cheese and decorate with olives. Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven at 350 for 30 minutes.

Serve Enchiladas topped with shredded lettuce and a dollop of Sour Cream. You can also be creative and garnish with green onions, chopped tomatoes or whatever tickles your fancy. Great with Salsa and chips as a side. Serves 8.

Total Cost: $9.15 approximately $1.14 per person.
Prep Time: 20 minutes

    There just isn't enough Mexican food here in Oz. Such a shame. We had Taco Bell for all of 10secs before they closed shop and left our shores.
