EASY New Mexico Style Flat Enchiladas Recipe with Knorr

5 from 1 review

Delicious New Mexico style stacked enchiladas.


  • 23 corn tortillas per person
  • 1 egg per person
  • shredded lettuce
  • shredded cheddar cheese (about 1/4 cup per person)
  • diced onion (about 1/4 cup per person)
  • enchilada sauce (use the homemade sauce recipe above – 1 cup per person)
  • 1 large tomato, cut into wedges (2 wedges per person)
  • 6 medium pitted olives per person


  1. Heat the enchilada sauce in a sauce pan on medium heat, until it begins to bubble.
  2. Add one tortilla to the pan at a time. Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes, until heated through.
  3. Remove the tortilla from the pan and place in the center of a ceramic, oven-safe plate.
  4. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese and diced onion on top of the tortilla.
  5. Repeat the process with the next tortilla. Continue stacking the tortillas, onions, and cheese until the final tortilla is on the stack. An adult male can eat 3-4 tortillas in a stack. Do not top the final tortilla with cheese and onion.
  6. Fry an egg and place on top of the tortilla stack. While frying the eggs, keep the plates of tortillas warm in an oven set to 200ºF. If you’re cooking for 1 or 2 people only, no need to keep the tortillas warm in the oven.
  7. Spoon extra sauce onto the stack if the tortillas look dry.
  8. Surround the stack of tortillas with lettuce, tomato, and olives.
