Sunflowergirl ~ I love your recipe for enchiladas and I intend on trying it out as soon as possible! I'll love it!
By the way, I have used the can of Hormel No-Beans chili as the meat in my crunchy tacos!
I thought about it and tried it....really good! Much cheaper than making the seasoned ground beef, too!
Thanks for the yummy meal I'm gonna have!

IMHO, the trouble with enchiladas is they are so boring. Mexican food is . . .well . . . Mexican. They don't have much to work with so you end up with these recipes based ground meat, beans, and some tomato sauce.

How about some Chorizo, cilantro, jalapenos, roasted sweet peppers, cucumber.

Or what about fish enchiladas. Fish tacos have just about beat beef tacos out of every good restaurant that has a taco on the menu.

I just find the formulaic beef, beans, and tomato so boring. But then I'm not really a fan of generic Mexican food period.

Sunflower Girl's recipe above is as good as it gets for a generic enchilada, no offense to her. She does a great service for an easy recipe for a person who would eat an enchilada at a fast food restaurant. they will love it. It will be 100 times better than Taco Bell. I'm just in a bad mood because I have no energy to make something exciting for lunch.

I'm sure this recipe will taste fine. Just sounds more like the makings of a burrito. I live in Enchiladas heart land.. No refried beans in our enchiladas. I always make a sauce for the enchiladas which have only cheese inside. Wife demands the chili also ...so I make a chili to add. I bake the enchiladas in the sauce. Just enough to melt all the cheese. Yes Wilson, enchiladas are a more bland type of Mexican. I assure you we use Cilantro, peppers, onions , garlic etc in most of our Mexican dishes. Cucumber? Fish tacos Fish enchiladas...? I agree this recipe is more for Taco Bell enthusiasts. Our closest one died. The only canned enchilada sauce I'd buy is the green sauce. I've experimented with green enchiladas lately. Thanks for the recipe Sunflower girl sounds good.

I, too, will make it without the beans....I don't like beans. I don't do the cucumber or the fish!

Wilson, that's not Mexican food, that's just how many Americans make Mexican food.

My favorite beef tacos are not the ground beef kind.. I'm making them tonight.. shredded roast beef (chuck is best) makes a wonderful filling. I don't season the meat much when cooking so it's versatile. That's what the hot sauce (usually homemade) is for!!

I'm too taco obsessed to have much room for enchiladas... sorry..
