Frankfurter Friday Wienie-Lottas

It seems unjust to compare this recipe with true enchiladas but that is what the title is referring to. To me this recipe has a weird sort of appeal; they would be quick and inexpensive and kids would probably like them.

8 to 10 tortillas
2 (10 1/2 oz.) cans chili without beans
1 tablespoon instant minced onion
6 to 8 drops bottled hot pepper sauce
1 pound (8 to 10) frankfurters
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
1/4 cup chopped canned green chili peppers
4 ounces sharp natural Cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)

Warm tortillas. Combine next three ingredients. Place a frank on each tortilla; top each with 2 tablespoons chili mixture (reserve remaining). Roll tortillas around franks. Arrange, seam side down, in 12x71/2x2-inch baking dish. Combine remaining chili mixture and tomato sauce; pour over tortillas. Sprinkle with chili peppers. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 3o minutes. Top with cheese and return to oven until cheese melts. Serves 4 or 5.
