3. Puree the sauce in a blender or food processor. (The sauce may be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.)

For the enchiladas:
1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Season the steak with salt and pepper and brown it in the hot pan. Transfer the steak to a plate and set aside.

2. Using the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.

5. Fill the corn tortillas with the steak mixture and arrange them in a single layer in a large baking dish. Cover the enchiladas with the sauce and sprinkle with cheese.

6. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. (This may be made in advance, stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and heated before serving.)
