I like to make quick and easy meals during the week. These Beef and Bean Enchiladas truly fit the bill! They are snap to make and taste great. They were even good reheated for lunch the next day. I served this with some Mexican rice and chips and salsa. Feel free to top the enchiladas with some sour cream, tomatoes and lettuce if desired. You could also add a can of Rotel tomatoes or a cup of chunky salsa to the meat mixture if you wanted to kick these up a notch. I am going to try that next time! YUM! These enchiladas could easily be made ahead of time and refrigerated (or frozen) until ready to be baked. I love easy meals like this!
