Beef Bean Enchilada
Enchiladas is one of my favorite comfort foods and we have it on the menu quite often. The recipe below makes a nice big pan of beef and bean enchiladas. There is usually enough for dinner and a few leftovers for lunch. You can make them with the corn tortillas as suggested, or replace them with flour tortillas if you prefer. They have ground beef and refried beans. seasoned with taco sauce and topped with enchilada sauce and of course cheese. We like black olives in there, but they are totally optional. Feel free to leave them out or substitute your favorite cooked vegetable in there. We’ve added canned corn and black beans in the past with good results.

Heat over medium heat. Dip tortillas, one at a time, in hot oil to soften; drain quickly on paper towels. Place about 1/3 cup of the meat filling on each tortilla; roll to enclose filling.
