If your looking for a quick and easy recipe look elsewhere. If your looking for some weight watcher/low cholesterol/low fat/low flavor recipe stick to your rice cakes. If your looking for the best beef enchilada recipe; You've found it! (I'm not biased at all! :p) Now roll your shirt sleeves up and let's get cooking!
I've been making and experimenting with this recipe since I was in college 20 years ago. My friends loved them then and family and friends love them now. I'm constantly being asked to make them for special occasions. There the best enchiladas I've ever had and I've had a lot of enchiladas :p
I suppose you could decrease the amounts to make a smaller batch but I never have. These are so good and so unhealthy I make them for special occasions only and I never have any left over. I know the quantities are pretty big so if your unsure of how good they will be I would recommend at least halving the recipe for a test batch.
