My husband likes Mexican food so I try to make him the occasion Mexican dish. This recipe, courtesy of Homemakers Magazine, is a great way to use up leftover roast beef. Also, it's not too spicy so children would enjoy too.

Your enchiladas rate 5 stars from us. We loved the addition of the sweet pepper and onion sauted. I had to use enchilada sauce since we didn't have taco sauce on hand, so I cut back a bit on the cumin. This is a great way to use up some left over beef roast. I shredded ours since we like it that way, I plan on trying this with chicken as well. For someone with a German sounding name you know how to russel-up some tasty Tex-Mex. Thanks!
Whoa! My daughter looked this recipe up (a new Recipezaar convert) and used leftover roast beef to make these. They were spectacular!! Delicious, and I don't think it's just because someone cooked them for me :) This is a keeper--we all loved it!
I had leftover pot roast so I used this and followed the recipe. It had great flavors but not too much heat, which was a compromise for us. I like it hot and my DH likes it mild, so this was kind of in between. DH enjoyed it as much as I did, so it's a keeper to be made again!
