Green Enchiladas

This recipe is also from Becoming Betty. These enchiladas have a really unique taste and were really yummy. Give them a try!

1 lb. lean ground beef/turkey
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced (I used 2)
3/4 cup salsa
1 Tbs. cornmeal
2 tsp. chili powder
1-1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. dried oregano
salt/pepper to taste
12 tortillas, warmed
shredded cheese

1-1/2 cups frozen white corn, thawed
1 (4 oz) can green chilies
1 cup fresh cilantro
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
salt/pepper to taste

*Saute beef, onion and garlic until beef is no longer pink. Remove from heat and stir in salsa, cornmeal and seasonings. Spoon about 1/4 cup of meat mixture down the center of corn tortillas, sprinkle some cheese and then roll up and place seam side down in a 9x13 greased pan.

*Put all of sauce ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well blended. Spoon over enchiladas and top with more cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for 5-10 more minutes.
