3 tsp oregano
1 tsp crushed whole cumin seed
2 1/2 Tbl cocoa
6 cup water or meat stock

8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
8 ounces shredded Colby cheese

For the Sauce:
Combine garlic and oil, saut? around until garlic is a golden color. Now add red chili powder, oregano, and cumin. Stir until mixture is hot and begins to smell good. Now add cocoa, water or meat stock and bullion cubes (if adding). Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer, and let simmer till needed.
For your meat mixture:
While the sauce is simmering, fry up a pound of hamburger, onion, and a pinch of garlic and onion powder. Now grate 1 lb. Monterey Jack or a mild cheddar cheese. Set aside. These will be used between the layers of your enchilada. Fry your tortillas in another tablespoon of vegetable oil. Preheat oven to 350 (175 Fahrenheit). Spoon some meat mixture & cheese into center of each tortilla. Then roll up and put in a 9 X 13 baking dish or pan. Pour sauce over tortillas and top with cheese and any remaining meat mixture. Put in oven and bake for 20 to 30 minutes.
