Need to go Shopping Enchiladas

*So, today was one of those days when wanted to use up some of the ingredients I had on hand without going shopping--I was pleased with this invention.  Here is it, but of course, adapt it to your liking and what you have on hand!

1 lb hamburger
1 onion, chopped
2 T oil
2 T flour
2 T chili powder
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 cup water
1/2 t ground cumin
1/2 t garlic salt
1/2 t onion powder
1 can green chilies 
corn chips
3/4 cup grated Mexican cheese

1. Brown hamburger, drain, add onion and cook until tender.
2. Add oil, flour, chili powder.  Brown flour until mixed well then add tomato sauce and water.
3. Add cumin, salt, onion powder, and chilies.  Let mixture simmer on low heat until thick.
4. Grease casserole dish. Dip each tortilla in sauce to soften. Place layer of tortillas, layer of meat, layer of cheese, and repeat until all used (I only had 4 flour tortillas, so I had two layers of tortillas, meat, cheese)
5. Top with crushed tortilla chips and remaining cheese. Heat for 25 minutes at 350.

6. Serve with sour cream and sliced avocados. 

*I was surprise that my attempt at homemade enchilada sauce turned out so well.  I like the crushed chips on top--just don't put too many on there!  Corn tortillas would be good in place of the flour tortillas.
