Mom's Famous Enchiladas

1 1/2 to 2 lbs of ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped or onion flakes
salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbs olive oil
1/2 cup flour
3 tsp chili powder
20 oz can tomato juice
1 1/4 cups water
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Shredded cheddar cheese

1 Brown ground beef with onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

2 To make sauce: combine oil, flour and chili powder in a large saucepan. Slowly add the tomato juice (to avoid lumps) then add the water. Add cumin, sugar, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Heat up till almost boiling. Add part of the sauce to the cooked ground beef.

3 Dip tortillas into chicken broth or in some warm enchilada sauce before filling (to soften them). Roll about 3 heaping tablespoons of meat with some shredded cheese into the tortilla and place them, touching, into a greased casserole pan. Pour remaining sauce over the enchiladas until it is close to the top. Using a knife, part the enchiladas to allow the sauce to seep between them. Do the same for the sides of the pan. Top with additional shredded cheese.

4 Bake at 350 till hot and bubbly.
