- Combine all the cheese except 2 ounces each of the jack and cheddar with the onion mixture, fold together well.

- Slightly warm the tortillas in a warm sauté pan to make them flexible, and put about 1/3 cup of the cheese mix on each tortilla and roll them up.

- Place the rolled tortillas in a lightly oiled casserole dish in a single layer.

- Cover and refrigerate until baking time.

1 tablespoon minced garlic

½ tablespoon chipotle en adobo

1 cup roasted tomatoes chopped

1½ cups stock or water

2 teaspoons cumin

1 teaspoon coriander

1 teaspoon oregano

½ teaspoon cinnamon

- Add diced jalapeños and garlic and cook 2 minutes more.

- Add tomatoes, stock and all seasonings; let simmer 15 minutes.

- Puree and strain the sauce and hold for service.

To assemble the dish:

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

- Ladle sauce over the enchiladas in the casserole dish, top with the remaining cheese.
