In 10 inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Fry tortillas, one at a time, for 10 seconds or until limp. Drain on paper towels. Spoon scant 1/4 cup meat mixture on each tortilla. Sprinkle with cheeses. Fold tortilla sides to overlap. Secure with a toothpick. Arrange tortillas in large baking dish. Combine remaining meat mixture and rest of enchilada sauce.
