Garlic Beef Enchiladas

"Enchiladas with a unique garlic flair, unlike any other enchilada I have ever tasted. The house smells WONDERFUL when these are baking. Although they do take some time to prepare, the work is definitely worth the reward! The ingredients are mostly things that you probably already have stocked in the cupboard. (Cook time includes stovetop and baking times)"

    My family loved these, and thought the sauce was really good. They're easy to put together, too. I tried veggie crumbles instead of beef, and that works just as well.

    This was the first recipe I added to my cookbook well over a year ago... I cannot believe I waited so long to make them! We loved them and they were even more yummy as leftovers. I took the advice of others and made the sauce that morning and refrigerated it until that evening so the spices could combine. My husband was actually craving them again a week or two later - that NEVER happens with things I cook for him! Thanks Manda.

    My Dad makes really tasty enchiladas, but they take all day to make. We gave this recipe a taste and they were delicious. My Dad's are still my favorite, but these come in a close 2nd. The only thing I added was some green onions on top before baking, it was so tasty. I would definitely add a touch of sour cream too! Thanks for posting!

    I made these for dinner last week and they were delicious!!! My 4 and 2 year olds gobbled them right up! And, it makes a lot too! My family of 4 ate on them for dinner for three days! I made these exactly according to the recipe except instead of flour tortillas I used corn tortillas. We enjoyed these very much and I will definately make again!!!

    These are very rich and delicious! I'm thrilled that I was able to make enchiladas here in Japan. All the ingredients were easy to find except the tortillas, but I finally found a package of a dozen frozen 6.5 inch flour tortillas and used them all. Thank you very much for this recipe.

    These were great ... made them just as stated and used corn tortillas. If you warm them in the microwave first, they don't break up when you roll them. The only change I will make next time is to use turkey instead of beef. I think you could easily substitute any kind of meat and these would be good.

    When I first made this I thought it was alright, but then as I had continued to eat the left overs I liked it less and less. I followed everything according to the recipe except I used Vegetable broth instead of beef broth. I thought that the chili powder flavoring was overwhelming and it wasn't a very complex blending of flavors as I would have liked, it just tasted like chili powder broth. Ugh. I don't plan on making this again, the search continues for a good beef enchilada recipe.

    This is a great recipe that I first got from an old Taste of Home magazine. We love the garlic flavor (I think I usually use 4 cloves in the sauce so it won't be too overpowering for the kids. I also use ground turkey instead of beef and sometimes use the 2% cheddar cheese to lighten it up a bit. Thanks for posting! : )
