My Mother came up with this recipe because my family loved Enchilada's. We had these often when we were growing up. For a cold winter's night this is a good supper dish to warm the soul!

Excellent! My family loved these.
My husband loves these. I use flour tortillas, not a fan of the corn. The wolf chili is a little to chili dog for me, but i just leave if off of my portion, and just use th enchilada sauce - delicious!
This was just the type of Beef Enchilada recipe I was looking for - simple ingredients, easy to prepare, and full of flavor. Because our family is on a tight budget, I buy ground beef in bulk, cook it up and refrigerate or freeze it. So for this recipe, I used some precooked, refrigerated ground beef and just microwaved the beef mixture. I used flour tortillas cause that's what I had on had and they were still delicious. To soften them up, I just sort of massaged them under hot water a bit. I put extra beef mixture in my enchiladas and they were so delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe. It will become a regular at our house!
