6 Ancho chilies dried

2 C. beef stock

1/2 lb. ground beef

1 t. cumin seed

1/4 t. oregano

Roast chilies on a baking sheet in a 300 degree F. oven 6 minutes. Watch closely so that they do not burn. Soak chilies for 1/2 hour in hot water. Drain. In a blender, puree the chilies with 1 C. of the beef stock.

In a medium skillet, saute the meat with the onion. Add the cumin, oregano and salt. Add the chilies and the beef broth. Simmer until it is thick. Add masa.

2 C. cheddar cheese

4 t. minced fresh jalapeno pepper

In a hot skillet, place the tortilla in it a few seconds to warm. Dip into the sauce to coat and then add 3-4 T. of the filling on the tortilla. Roll up and place it in baking dish. Repeat until all filling is used.
