Next, make sure you stir and combine these ingredients until they are all well mixed for around two minutes.After that, add the cilantro in it, stir, and turn off the heat.

1Here, you need to slice the steak into several thin pieces. Then, cut also the onions and the bell pepper into thin slices. Next, prepare a medium cooking pan to heat the oil and steak along with the onion and peppers in it. Add with salt, cumin and white pepper to taste. Then, cook and stir the steak until they are completely done.

2Prepare the oven to 350 Fahrenheit-degree or 180 celsius-degree. While waiting for the oven to be ready, you may prepare a baking dish with 9×13 inch sized and simply arrange the enchiladas layer on it. Make sure the dish is enough for 7 to 8 layers of enchiladas.

3Then, pour the sauce mixture over the enchiladas. Spread the sauce evenly. Next, add the shredded cheese on one side of the tortilla. To continue, give some steak mixture on top of the cheese mixture. Simply roll the tortilla and put it in the baking dish.

Before you bake the enchiladas, pour the remaining sauce over on top of it along with the shredded cheese. Next, bake for around 17 to 19 minutes. To serve, you may garnish with chopped cilantro and jalapeno.
