Cheesy Beef Enchiladas Recipe

Warm up a cold winter night with a hearty serving of Tex-Mex food. These enchiladas have a flavorful combination of ingredients and a rich homemade sauce. This easy one-dish meal gives me more time to spend with guests. —Mary Anne McWhirter, Pearland, Texas

"My wife and I like this recipe, I followed it to the letter. It says to put in ungreased pan, I won't do that again, it stuck to the dish and it was hard getting it out in one piece. We didn't think it was bland. I wouldn't omit or add anything to this recipe."

"These are REALLY easy and REALLY good to make! I do add some chopped & peeled green chiles too. Also, I don't make the "Sauce" I just use a 16oz jar of El Paso Chunky salsa (makes this even quicker)."

"This is a fabulous recipe. I have made it many times already, and it is definitely my favorite. :) When I was out of tomato sauce I used V8 juice & it was really good! This has become a regular at our house. I love it!"
