    Megan's Mommy's Note:

    I dont like the store bought red enchilada sauce, so I make my own. You can use any beans you like, black, pinto, chili or kidney. I have also left the beans out, and spread the tortilla with refried beans before adding the beef mixture. Either way is great. I like to make the sauce and beef mixture the night before, then all I have to do is assemble and bake, and its super easy. This recipe freezes well. Sometimes I like to make a double batch of the sauce, and freeze for later use.

      These were super awesome! I did make a few changes, but I don't think they really changed the personality of the dish. We're gluten free, so I used corn tortillas and used leftover refried beans instead of canned beans. As you can see in my photo, we garnished with a roughly chopped bunch of cilantro, about 1/2 cup of cheese and 2 large heirloom tomatoes, chopped roughly. YUM!!!
