Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 10 Old El Paso™ Taco Boats™ mini soft flour tortillas (1 sleeve from Party Pack)
  • 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 oz)
  • 3 tablespoons sliced green onions

Instructions

Step 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Brush melted butter on all sides of boats; place in 3-quart baking dish. Bake 5 to 8 minutes or until brown and firm to the touch. Boats will crisp slightly as they cool.

Step 2 Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain. Reserve 1/3 cup of the enchilada sauce. Stir remaining enchilada sauce and green chiles into beef mixture; return to heat. Simmer mixture, uncovered, over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes or until thickened.

Step 3 Spoon filling into boats; top with shredded cheese, and drizzle with remaining enchilada sauce. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with green onions.
