Raise your hand if you love quick, easy and delicious dinners! My hand is raised high in the air! I really should change my blog name to Love to Bake in the Kitchen, Hate to Make Dinner. What do you think? Totally kidding. But making dinner isn’t so bad when it’s quick and so good! That is why I love this recipe! In my opinion it tastes as good as enchiladas that take too long to make without all the effort.
All you do is cut up corn tortillas, lightly fry them, then cook up onions and ground beef. Season to taste, add a can of enchilada sauce then add the corn tortillas back. That’s it! Then have each person top their enchiladas with their favorite toppings. This recipe can easiliy be changed in about any way you think sounds good! You could add more vegetables, beans etc. I think I’ll add green chilies to it next time. We love this recipe. It’s already a family favorite! We’ve had it quite a few times this summer and I just love how quick and yummy it is!
