  • 3. Pour 1-1/2 cups sauce into an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish. Place about 1/4 cup beef mixture off center on each tortilla; top with 1-2 tablespoons cheese. Roll up and place over sauce, seam side down. Top with remaining sauce.
  • 4. Bake, covered, 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 5 servings.
