Reviews for Beef & Bean Enchiladas

The family voted this is a keeper, but I will add more spices as they were kind of bland. I also will bake them as it was frustrating to have to do them one at a time and I think baking them would blend the ingredients more and add the flavor. Plus everyone's is ready at the same time. I too only used 1 can of beans and 1/2 pd beef. That made 6 for us and they were full enough.
I know, I know, you're supposed to read the entire recipe before beginning. That said, because the recipe said enchiladas I assumed I would be rolling these and baking them. When I got to the step with the raw onions and wrapping them like a burrito, I thought, "these are are the strangest enchiladas." Anyway they were very good once I added some red pepper.
I used to make a recipe for burritoes that was on the back of a campbells chili beef soup can. They have either since stopped making that soup or they stopped carrying it in my area. This recipe tastes very very close to those same burritoes. The enchillada sauce could probably be left out or halfed. It does make quite a few but they freeze excellent, so you can just take a couple out and pop them into microwave for a quick lunch.
I used only 1 16oz. can of refried beans, 2 cans would have been too much. Very good other than that.
I used only 1 16oz. can of refried beans and found it to be plenty. 2 would have been too much. Otherwise very good!
