Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in 2/3 cup of the enchilada sauce, the taco seasoning mix, green chiles and frozen corn; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened.
  3. Lightly brush each side of corn tortillas with oil. Place 4 stacks of 3 tortillas each on ungreased large cookie sheet. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until tortillas are warmed and pliable. Remove from oven. Keep covered with a clean kitchen towel to keep warm.
  4. Working quickly with one tortilla at a time, place on work surface. Sprinkle 1 heaping tablespoonful cheese down center of each tortilla. Top with 1/4 cup beef mixture. Gently wrap tortilla tightly around filling, placing seam side down in baking dish to make two rows. Repeat filling and rolling with remaining tortillas. Top enchiladas with remaining enchilada sauce and cheese.
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Top with tomatoes, cilantro and crema.

Expert Tips

  • Corn tortillas may crack if not warmed. Brushing each tortilla lightly with vegetable oil and warming briefly in the oven until they are soft enough to roll will prevent them from cracking.
  • Be sure not to have too many tortillas in one stack, or they will not warm enough to roll.
  • Try rolling up one tortilla first. If it doesn't roll up easily, keep them in the oven for another minute, and check again. While filling enchiladas, keep covered with a clean kitchen towel as you work so they stay warm.
