2 cups sour cream
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped

1. Preheat oven to 425. In a bowl, mix sour cream, green chiles, cilantro, onion, garlic, and cumin.

2. Separate out about 1/3 of the sour cream mixture. This will be used later to top the enchiladas. In the remaining 2/3, mix in the cheese. This will be the enchilada filling.

3. Flash-fry the tortillas by heating the oil in a pan, then placing the tortilla in the oil for about 3 seconds, then flip it and fry the other side for about 3 seconds. Stack the flash-fried tortillas on a paper towel.
