"Frenchiladas"

I rarely cook Mexican food. This idea is based on the first meal I ever cooked in my first apartment when my parents came for dinner. I had my new Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, (you know, the red checked one), and made something called "hamburger stroganoff". It was easy and tasty. I think I remembered it while watching Julie and Julia, and watching Julie learn to "not crowd the mushrooms". It seemed sort of French, given the butter and mushrooms...

1 large onion, sliced
12-15 mushrooms, sliced
2 T. butter
a splash of cream
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained
8 oz. gruyere cheese, grated
1 pint "light" sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup (stop laughing!)
6 flour tortillas

Caramelize the onion in a little olive oil for about 15 minutes. Saute the mushrooms in the butter, and stir in a splash of cream. Mix together soup and sour cream.
Spread a little of the "sauce" in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. In each tortilla, spread a splatula full of sauce down the center. Top with a spoon of cooked meat, some of the caramelized onions, a few mushrooms, and some grated gruyere.

Roll into an enchilada. Repeat with 5 more tortillas. Top with remaining sour cream mixture and any extra mushrooms and cheese.

Ooey, gooey, comfort food.

Sounds like something to try! Thanks, Palma!

Barb Cabot:

I'm not laughing either..this looks really good. I love all the things inside. So cute how you made this for your parents. I bet they loved it.

Jane:

Palma, I had to laugh--haven't thought of hamburger stroganoff (did we spell that right) in years. It was a standard meal and my kids always hated it. Ah yes--the red and white cookbook......

I haven't tried making flour tortillas yet and those you can buy here are not nice. I made corn ones last night though, so I expect they are makeable?
This sounds like something I would have made in a crepe. OTH as I clicked on the blòog this morning, my mind was on caramel cake, so it's wonder I read something with mushrooms!
