1 lb ground beef
minced onion (I use dried)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can red enchilada sauce
8-10 flour tortillas

Brown ground beef with onion; drain out any fat. Add 1/2 of the enchilada sauce and 1 cup of shredded cheese. Cook over low just until cheese is melted. Spoon meat into center of tortillas (a line down the center) and roll up. Place in a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Cover with remaining enchilada sauce and remaining cheese. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees 20-25 min.

I used to make chicken enchiladas, but I didn't like how time consuming and/or fattening they were...(very creamy and cheesy...yum) One day my husband requested enchiladas with "that red sauce." I tried it, and haven't made the chicken enchiladas since. Nothing against chicken enchiladas...I think they are quite good...this recipe is just much easier, and well liked by my family. The sauce pictured is my favorite brand for this. I can't remember how many ounces this can is...I just know it is the medium sized can. Sorry if that is confusing...There really isn't an exact amount on how much sauce you need to use...just make sure there is enough to make the meat saucy, and enough to cover the enchiladas. I serve them with a little sour cream, and refried beans or black beans on the side.

I LOVED the apple tart! I am a big pie crust lover and I thought this was full of yummy crust! Thanks a bunch! I think I'll make the enchiladas after the babies are born.
As far as the calzones. I thought they were great as well! This site is so helpful!

I know this is an old post but thought I'd comment anyway. I make the same enchiladas but with chicken. They're so yummy! Love your site!
