Easy Enchiladas

I have many recipes on here from the easy party snack the made from scratch dessert but what about the basic home dinner? These are not any thing fancy or hard to make. My mother showed me how to make them and they are the most requested thing in my house hold. So here it is, the extremely easy and affordable beef enchiladas!

1 lb beef
1 bag of Mexican mixed cheese
1 small can green chilies
1 large can enchilada sauce
1 package beef seasoning
1 package tortilla shells
sour cream (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown beef in pan and add chilies and taco seasoning according to package (will usually have you drain and add water) You can omit the chilies if you want a milder enchilada.
In the bottom of a 9x13 pan, pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce. Take a tortilla shell and fill it with a spoon full of the beef and chili mixture. You can make them as thin or as thick as you want. Roll up the enchilada and place seam side down in the pan.
Once all your enchiladas are rolled, pour the remaining enchilada sauce on top and cover with cheese. As you can tell in the pictures we love cheese on ours!

Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

We have played around with these where they are just cheese inside, or beans (I love using mexican corn and black beans as a filler, so yummy!)

Garnish with sour cream and enjoy!
