These enchiladas were great. My whole family loved them. I too also used refried beans instead of chili beans. I think I will use refried beans in this eery time. I will make this for sure many more times. Thanks!! :)

These enchiladas were great and we had some meat filling left over and made taco salads with it.

My husband and I truly love this recipe. I usally freeze the leftovers for another meal and many times use refried beans in place of the chili beans. Heating the tortillas in the oil keeps them extra moist and yummy. I do this all the time with tortilla dishes now. A must try recipe!

This is a delicious recipe! I have made it many times, and it is always a big hit! I usually leave out the beans and add more cheese because my family prefers it that way. Yummy!!!! Note: At the top of the recipe it says that this makes 28 servings-this is a mistake-this makes 6-7 enchiladas.

Better make a double batch because these go quick! Very easy & just the right amount of spice!
