Reviews for Cheddar Beef Enchiladas
"Family loved these!"
"I used picante sauce instead of salsa because that is what I had at home. Very good recipe!"
"Our family loves this one! We have tried a few different jarred salsas, but the one we have liked the best for this recipe has been the On The Border Medium Salsa."
"My boyfriend loved it!"
"This was definitely a hit, the only thing I changed was to add some canned green Chile's for more spice and less "taco" flavor to the meat mixture. I didn't measure, go according to your taste, they were awesome."
