    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    This is for the meat-lovers! I normally create ground beef dishes with meat substitutes in mind, but I don't believe that this can be duplicated in that way. I created this totally for my boyfriend; it's not "saucy", tomato-ey and loaded with hot peppers, but it's full of the aroma and flavor of cumin and garlic. Sprinkle a little Oaxacan cheese (kind of a "Mexican string cheese") in the enchiladas, too, and try this recipe in tacos or taco salad as well. And not a single store-bought packet of anything sacrificed its life to make this dish!

      I have had this in my cookbook for a while and am sorry it took me so long to prepare it! It is delicious! I reduced the recipe amount by 1/3 because I only had 1 lb. of ground beef. I only used a smidgen of cumin, because I don't like to really taste it as the "main feature" in a recipe. Other than this, I followed the reciped as directed. I did find that I did not need to simmer as long as the recipe called for. I used this to make what I call a "stack". In a pie plate, I layered as follows, 1 flour tortilla, enchilada filling, homemade salsa, cheese and repeated the layering, ending with a flour tortilla on top spread with salsa and cheese! Popped it in the oven for 15-20 minutes and it was delicious! DH and I really enjoyed this! Thanks EGA!

      This is awesome! I made this for my bf and put it in burritos. I make burritos quite often with a store package of seasoning. He kept eating and saying "wow this is really really good tonight!" I finally told him why it was so good and now I have to make mexican ground beef this way every time. Thanks!

      Great flavor!! DH grew up "west of the fox" (Dekalb, Il.) so this caught my eye and caught his attention when I served the filling in tortillas with cheese and sour cream. Leftovers were rolled with ranch beans and frozen for quick lunches. I especially like the ingredients - no preservatives! We'll make these again. Thanks!
