If you're looking for a quick and easy dinner that your entire family will love, these Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas are sure to please!
I am a dairy lover. Always have been, always will be. How can you go wrong with a Mexican dish fully of melty cheese? You can't.
For the inside of the enchiladas, I used a combination of cheddar and Monterey Jack. I'm a big fan of grating cheese off the block because I think that's how it tastes best, but you can just as easily use the pre-shredded stuff.
I also decided to use flour tortillas for this recipe. I actually prefer the taste of corn tortillas in my enchiladas, but the flour ones are just so darn easy to roll up!
And of course, you have to save some of that shredded cheese for the top.
The result is a family friendly meal that won't get any complaints at the dinner table!
And because I like to add corn and black beans to the inside, these really feel like a complete meal. Serve them up hot with a small salad on the side for the most satisfying dinner you'll have all week.
I like to top mine with some cilantro, avocado, and cojita.
But wait... there's more! Don't forget the crema. Ever had it? Think sour cream, only better. YUM!
