Beef Enchiladas

These easy enchiladas are the perfect hearty meal. They are packed with ground beef, black beans made really cheesy and delicious with a sprinkling of Monetary Jack and cheddar cheese. Treat yourself to a couple of these guys with a side of Jarritos Margaritas. 😎

Like your enchiladas with a kick? Finely mince 2 jalapeños and sauté them with the onions for a little added heat, or add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne to the ground beef mixture. And, if you've got the extra time, give the dish an upgrade with Makinze's homemade enchilada sauce

If you have leftovers you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days but these actually freeze pretty well too! Up to 2 months. Looking for a meatless version? Try our Vegetarian Enchiladas!
