Cooking Instructions:

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). In a large skillet, cook the chicken or beef until fully cooked. Remove from heat and shred the meat with a fork. Set aside.

  • Step 3: In a separate saucepan, heat the tomato sauce on medium heat. Add the cilantro and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Step 4: Take a tortilla and spoon a generous amount of the meat mixture onto the center. Roll it up and place it seam-side down in a baking dish. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas and meat mixture.
  • Step 5: Pour the tomato sauce over the rolled tortillas, making sure they are fully covered. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top.
  • Step 6: Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve hot and enjoy!
