Mom's Yummy Enchiladas

1 1/4 lb lean ground beef
1 can mild chili beans
1 dozen flour tortillas
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 lb grated cheddar cheese, divided
1 can enchilada sauce, your "heat" preference as desired

Brown ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Pour into a colander and drain well. Rinse with hot water to remove fat. Return beef to skillet and add chili beans. Heat to simmer and cook 5-10 minutes. Divide the meat/bean mixture evenly among the 12 tortillas centering mixture in the center of the tortillas. Divide the onion evenly among the tortillas adding atop the meat/bean mixture. Top with approximately 1 tablespoon of the cheese per tortilla. Roll tortilla tightly around mixture and hold together with a toothpick. Place close together in a baking dish. Spoon the enchilada sauce over the tortillas, covering each. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the sauce. Add lid to casserole dish or cover with foil if lid is not available. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until bubbly and cheese is melted. Remove from oven and place on individual plates or a serving platter. Garnish with shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes. Serve with sour cream, guacamole and salsa, if desired.

This recipe is suitable for diabetics as it has protein in the meat, beans and cheese to counteract the carbs.

Note: Be Sure To Remove Toothpicks Before Serving!! Choking On A Hidden Toothpick Can Be Deadly. Never let it be said your cooking killed someone!
