"I created these enchiladas to satisfy several picky eaters in our house," explains Stacy Cizek of Conrad, Iowa. "They were an instant hit and are now requested at least once a week. I especially like that we can enjoy this meal twice by freezing half for a later (and busier) day."

MY REVIEW

"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."

"My family loves this! I love that it makes enough to freeze."

"Thanks for sharing the recipe. We loved it. I ran out of beans for the last one (just shy by 1 Tbls). I added onion to the beef while it was cooking too. Also we used more cheese, can you ever have enough cheese? (We don't think so.) Turned out wonderful and nice to have the 2nd pan in the freezer ready for another night when I don't feel like cooking. Since there are only 2 of us, we should have made several smaller 8x8 pans instead of 9x13, but I always follow the recipe exactly as possible the first time through and make changes the next time if needed. I think that will be the only other change we'll make next time. Thanks again for sharing such an "easy" recipe that makes enough for two suppers! Love it!!"

"This recipe in great! Not a big fan of refried beans, so we added black beans in the meat mixture. Something everyone liked and it made great leftovers!"
