Great way to use left over roast. I usually put in a couple of Chopped Jalapeno peppers but it depends if you like it hot or not

Wonderful, quick and different! We had a large leftover BBQ'd steak which I cubed. Followed your directions except for the addition of cumin to the onion/pepper medley. Purchased an excellent green salsa and added to the mixture. Poured a red salsa over the assembled batch and topped with fat free sour cream. Very filling indeed!

I made these the other night with my leftover roast, and it came out so yummy! The only change I made was to use a can of enchilada sauce versus the taco sauce. I will use this again for sure, thanks for posting!

Had lots of left over roast beef that I shredded (we prefer shredded to the cubed). I had to use enchilada sauce since that was what was in the cupbpoard. But what made this a great recipe was the addition of the peppers and onions which I sauted. We LOVED these enchilads. Thanks for a great dinner idea, Bergy.
