These cheese enchiladas may not have meat, but it sure packs a punch of bold flavors that are balanced out by the creaminess of monterey and queso blanco.

  4. Coat each tortilla with the Salsa Roja and transfer to a plate, stacking the tortillas on top of each other.

  5. In a medium bowl, mix the queso blanco with the Monterey Jack. Set a tortilla on a work surface and spoon ¼ cup of the cheese and about 1 tablespoon of minced onion in the center.

  8. Bake the enchiladas for 25 minutes, or until heated through and the sauce is bubbling.
