Beef Enchiladas - Chef Fun Kitchen

Beef Enchiladas

Mexican food is one of my favorite types of food to eat when I’m going out to eat. Italian usually pales in comparison to what I was used to eating at my grandma’s table growing up, sushi and Chinese are typically reserved for takeout, and one can only eat so many sandwiches. I’ve found that it’s very hard to go wrong when going out for Mexican.

The meal typically starts off with a big basket of chips and either salsa, queso or guacamole (or all three!), and it only goes up from there. I like to try different dishes and don’t have one go-to choice when getting Mexican, but one that I don’t order nearly enough is enchiladas. I found myself craving them recently, and was in dire need of an awesome, authentic-tasting recipe to make at home. Mission accomplished!

Beef Enchiladas

A long, long, long time ago, I was on a fajita/enchilada kick, where I would basically make the filling for chicken fajitas (chicken, onions, peppers, sometimes mushrooms), then roll it up in tortillas and bake it in a very bland, sorry-tasting enchilada sauce.

(What was I thinking?!) My tastes have definitely evolved over the years, so that wasn’t going to cut it for me anymore. Once I read this enchilada recipe, I knew it was beyond promising. While the cooking time is lengthy, it doesn’t take much effort and it has a fantastic, authentic flavor. The sauce totally makes it!
