Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

Enchiladas are a family favorite around here so I thought I would show you how I make them.

Ingredients:
1 can Refried Beans
1 can Enchilada Sauce
4 Flour Tortillas
1 - 1 1/2 cups Freshly Grated Cheddar Cheese

In a small bowl combine beans, 1/4 can enchilada sauce, and 1/2 cup cheese. Evenly distribute bean mixture between tortillas and place rolled enchiladas into a greased baking dish. Top with remaining enchilada sauce and cover with cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.

This is definitely a super quick meal to throw together! I like to serve these enchiladas with corn and sour cream.

(Sometimes...If he has been extra nice to me, I add ground beef and olives to Brian's side of the dish.) :)

Looks so good. I think this recipe was what you put in the 8th grade basketball cookbook. X O

That is really an inexpensive dish. I wish my husband would eat beans so we can save some. It seems meat is a staple in our household. Do you make your own tortilla or is it a store bought one? Can you recommend a brand which is not unhealthy? Thanks!

I just made enchiladas the other night, but I layered the inredients like lasagna instead of rolling. Super easy and still as good!

I also have a great Enchilade dish that is very easy:
1. Use fresh ground beef(organic we buy fresh meat from my dad's friend that is a meat farmer)
2. Cook on stove with onions and when the meat has no red drain the grease then add 1/2 packet of taco mix. Let it cook for anohter 5 min. Let it cool
3. In a large pot place 2 cans of cream of chicken and and rest of your taco mix and one small onion. Let it boil and then turn off.You can add more taco mixture it is up to you how hot you want it.

4. Dip your soft sheel tacos in the the pot with the cream/taco mixture use tongs.
5. Place taco shells on a plate wrap with meat mixture in a bakiing dish.
Place the rest of the cream/taco mixture on the enchilades and then add mexican cheese.
6. Place in the oven until your cheese is melted.
Have a good day and thanks for the tip about cradle cap.
