Cover evenly with second jar of enchilada sauce and remaining cheese. Bake in 375°F oven until bubbling, about 15 minutes.

The tortillas are easier to manage if you dip them in heated enchilada sauce before attempting to roll them, also a little season salt added to the beef goes a long way.

A little boring. Needs some more stuff in the meat mixture. Tastes good, just needs more

I tried this recipe last night and I followed it exactly. It came out just okay. I wouldn't try it again. I think I was looking for a more authentic Mexican taste and it just wasn't there. It was very easy and anyone could make it. Overall I wasn't very satisfied with the taste.

This was a super quick, super simple recipe with great flavor. Instead of rolling the tortillas I layered the like lasagna and saved a bunch of time.

This recipe was okay. Next time I'll use flour tortillas instead of corn (as corn tortillas fall apart when you roll them, even if you've baked them first). Also, I'll season the beef with cumin next time instead of chili powder. Replacing the cheese with a Mexican blend would probably also make this better. I originally made the recipe as instructed, however, I don't think I would make this again without several big changes.

This recipe was delicious! My 4 children even had seconds. I made a batch of vegitarian as well...put beans,rice and cheese. Loved them! I def suggest using a medium or mild enchilada sauce for kids though. I used medium on mine and they were pretty spicy, mild for the kids and it was just right! Will def make again! Thanks!

Recipes that are tasty, quick and easy are a staple for my weeknights. Add in the ability to clean as you go and we've got a big winner here! Perfect even for my picky husband and turned out to be surprisingly mild in spite of the chili powder and enchilada sauce. Next time I make this, I will go with a slightly spicier enchilada sauce.
