GETTING READY
1. Take a 9" X 13" oven proof dish, pour a thin layer of red enchilada sauce.
2. In a skillet, heat oil for frying the corn tortillas, fry them one at a time for a few seconds to soften them (do not get them crisp, you won't be able to roll them), and set them aside in a paper towel to drain the excess oil.

5. Fill each with the shredded cheese, roll and place in the pan prepared with the layer of sauce in the bottom.

This is how my mother in law makes them, and they are great - especially as leftovers the next day when the tortillas have absorbed the red sauce. Yum!
