Easy Beef or Vegetarian Enchiladas

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

This is a great weeknight dinner. It takes just over 1/2 hour to get on the table and uses simple, easy to find ingredients. I found the recipe on Chatelaine Magazine's web site. It's also easy to cut the recipe in half.

Terrific tasty enchiladas! I went part way between meat and vegetarian; for 4 enchiladas (2 servings) I used 3 oz of ground turkey breast and the rest chopped mushrooms and spinach. I also left out the avocados to lighten it up a bit, and used lowfat whole wheat tortillas. Loved the cumin and spicy salsa, and just the right amount of cheese. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
