How to make Tortilla Chip Enchiladas
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 4: To a large mixing bowl, pour the bag of tortilla chips, then gently break the chips a bit.
Step 5: Over the chips, add the beef mixture, then pour in the whole can of enchilada sauce. Now, add a cup of cheese and mix gently until well combined.
Step 6: Using a nonstick spray, grease the baking dish.
Step 7: Into the prepared baking dish, pour the tortilla chip enchilada and sprinkle with 2 cups of shredded cheese, completely covering the top.
Step 8: Tent the enchilada with foil and place it in the preheated oven. Bake for about 50 minutes until done.
