Reviews for Garlic Beef Enchiladas
"I made these enchiladas for my husband and sons and they really enjoyed them. I added 1/2 cup chopped Jalapenos from my garden to the beef mixture, since my husband loves hot peppers. This recipe was a big hit!"
"This is my first enchiladas that I made and I'm glad its came out great., even I misread the last two directions (I didn't put cheese in the tortilla and I put all the cheese on the tortillas before the first bake). My husband was raving it and he even brought the leftovers for work. I lessened the amount of flour as what the other reviewers said. I also lessened the amount of chili because my husband is not fan of spicy and for my 2 year old son. This is a keeper and next time I'll read the directions very carefully."
"I made this for 3 adults and 7 children under age 9. I made it because I love garlic and then started to worry as I tasted the sauce that the "kick" would be too much for all the young kids. I was so wrong! The kids couldn't get enough of it. I made 1 and 1/2 batches and it made 14 very full enchiladas. There were 2 left for today's lunch and it tasted even better as leftovers. For the sauce I lessened the flour slightly (by 2T for 1 1/2 batches) and it was still a little too thick for me. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Everyone was begging for this meal again soon as they were eating it last night."
"This is a great recipe as is, and easy to modify to suit your needs. I make this gluten-free with corn starch instead of flour, I use a can of Ro-Tel in the meat instead of stewed tomatoes, and white corn tortillas instead of flour tortillas. I have made this again and again, my whole family loves it!"
"I add 1 diced chipotle chile + tbsp chipotle sauce while cooking beef for flavor. Delicious!!!"
