muey Bueno!

I changed up my recipe a little. I added a little tomato sauce and taco sauce to my beef. I also didn't add any meat to my enchilada sauce. I just put the sauce over my beef stuffed soft tacos. This was a crowd pleaser!

These are soooooo delicious. I bought a spicy enchilada sauce for more of a kick.

I make this all the time. My kids love it. I do sub a can of chopped mild green chiles for the green pepper and I add a packet of taco seasoning to the meat. Very quick, easy and tasty

Added black beans to the mixture. Used 1/2 of the sauce in the filling and the other half on top of the enchiladas. Family was debating on whether they liked the sauce added on top before cooking (made tortillas softer) or during last few minutes (made tortillas crisper). I added it before but didn't completely cover a few so those were crisper.

Delicious! Added black beans and used a can of diced tomatoes instead of sauce. They did not last long.
