Beef 'n' Bean Enchiladas Recipe

Beef 'n' Bean Enchiladas Recipe

After cooking ground beef in the microwave, I combine it with cans of bean dip and green chilies to fill flour tortillas. Cheddar cheese and black olives jazz up the prepared enchilada sauce that tops this swift Mexican specialty. -Linda Lundmark, Martinton, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

"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."

"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!"

"this was a super easy and very good recipe that i will definitly make again, preparing it in the microwave is a huge time saver, i used the flour tortillas because that is what i had on hand, but it was still excellent!"

"Instead of using plain ground beef, I use our leftover taco meat in this recipe. It adds even more great flavor and is a clever disguise for the leftover taco meat!"
