Almost instant enchiladas!

Having 6 kids, a thyroid that sucks my brain power and trying to get everything ready for our trip to "the big city" for Jaden's surgery... Really it is amazing I didn't put a quart of ice cream in the microwave.
I did however grab a can of enchilada sauce rather than the organic vegetarian retries beans...and opened it before I realized it. I stood there staring at the sauce. I have to be gone a week for the surgery and hospital stay, so popping it in the fridge is the same as tossing it in the trash.

So I had a crazy idea. Can you turn tacquitos into enchiladas? I just picked up some frozen ones for an easy lunch snack while I am gone.
Desperation may be the mother of invention, it definitely helps this mother invent meals.

So here we go!

1 box of 40 tacquitos 
1 can red enchilada sauce
I bag of Mexican blend cheese
1 large baking dish

Pour half the enchilada sauce in the baking dish, line with tacquitos.
Pour the 2nd half of the sauce on top.
Spread cheese over the surface.

Toss in the oven at 400 degrees and bake for 30 min.

And AMAZINGLY, you have some fairly decent, no work involved, enchiladas!

I forgot to take a finished picture, so here it is with a bite missing.
