Beef Enchiladas Recipe

I wanted something a little different for the holiday weekend so I chose this Enchiladas Recipe. This recipe calls for using Tortillas corn wraps and unfortunately I don’t usually have very good luck forming them; they always seem to crack. This recipe calls for placing them in the sauce to soften them up, using the hot sauce and liquid, which adds some moisture and heat. I was surprised how well I was able to use the Tortillas wraps after they soaked in the sauce for a few seconds. Other than wrapping, this is a simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of prep time. Cooking time is also minimal so you can have a one dish dinner on the table in about an hour.

The next time you’re in the mood for Mexican cuisine give this Beef Enchiladas Recipe a try. Enjoy
