    Easy Homemade Enchiladas

    For these easy enchiladas we usually make our own enchilada sauce on the spot using our favorite homemade enchilada sauce mix.

    You'll Need:

    1 lb ground Beef or Turkey
    3 c. Enchilada Sauce (make your own or use 2 cans)
    2 Cups Refried Beans (make your own or use 1 can)
    1 Medium Onion, Sliced
    1 Bell Pepper
    (red or green), Sliced
    Shredded Cheddar Cheese
    Fresh Sliced Mushrooms (optional)
    Flour Tortillas
    Shredded Lettuce
    1 Medium tomato, diced
    Black Olives, (optional)
    1 T. Olive oil

    Lightly saute the onions, bell pepper (& mushrooms if you opted to add them in!), in olive oil over medium heat. Set aside. In a medium frying pan, brown the ground meat (if using beef, you may need to drain any excess grease!), add refried beans, mixing well. Add 1 c. of Enchilada sauce (any level of hotness that you desire).


    Place a small amount
    of sauteed onions/peppers into a flour tortilla, add a layer of meat/bean mixture, top with shredded cheese. Fold sides in and place in a 9x13 casserole dish. Repeat until all the beef/bean mixture is used up. (Don't worry, these freeze well!)

    Top the entire dish with remaining enchilada sauce and shredded cheese. Bake at 375F for 15 minutes, or until cheese it melted and bubbly.

    Plate onto freshly shredded lettuce, top with diced tomatoes and black olives (if you have some!) Serve with a dollup of sour cream.



    This recipe is easy doubled or tripled, you can add jalapenos or additional spices as desired. It's quick, simple and filling. Serve with mexican rice or refried beans to really stretch out the meal.
