Reviews for Beef 'n' Bean Enchiladas
"I did not cook this dish in the microwave., and made a few other changes . I used ground turkey instead of ground beef , and cut the sodium down. All in all it was still really good and my kids loved it! it will be a regular dish."
"Have made this many times for my family! One of our favorites!!"
"This was so good!! Instead of microwaving the dish at the end I put it in the oven at 375 for 15 minutes. Delicious!"
"I was all set to give this recipe a go- UNTIL I read the nutritional facts, and was astounded at the level of sodium! I would never eat this as is, or ever feed to a child. So many changes could be made to make this healthier, and not a heart attack waiting to happen!"
"Fairly quick and easy, really yummy and flavorful. This has become a regular dish of mine."
