Crumble beef into a 1 1/2 quart casserole.
Cover with a lid or wax paper and microwave on HIGH (100%) for 2 minutes.

Microwave, covered, on HIGH (100%) for 3 minutes; drain off fat.

Pour 1 can of enchilada sauce into a 7 by 11 inch baking dish; set aside.
Wrap tortillas in paper towels.
Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 1 minute.
To assemble enchiladas, place about 3 tablespoons of the beef mixture down center of each tortilla.
Top with 2 tablespoons of the cheese.
Roll to enclose.
