Beef and Rice Enchiladas!

Last week I was on a Mexican food kick.  I had Nacho Chicken Enchilada Casserole, Nachos and Beef and Rice Enchiladas. NOM NOM NOM...

These were super easy and very delicious.

First things first... POUR THE WINE!

I started making Spanish Rice out of a packet (quick and easy and I used Meijer brand) and browning about a pound of hamburger meat and some onions.  I made sure to drain the meat afterwards so it wasn't yuck-o greasy. Oh and go ahead and pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Then I poured the rice into the meat and 1 10 ounce can of enchilada sauce in with the meat and stirred. Yum.  I may have taste tested at this point.

Then I got out 8 flour soft shells (only used 7 because I suck at portioning haha) and filled each one up with about 2/3 cup mixture and topped it with a sprinkle of cheese. 

Then I layered them all nicely in a 13by9 pan.

Topped it with another 10 ounce can of enchilada sauce and some cheese and stuck it in the oven for 8 minutes. (Enough to let the cheese melt.)


These were fabulous and delicious and perfect with some fruit!

- 1 pound hamburger
- 1 package spanish rice
- half a medium size onion, chopped
- 2 10 ounce cans enchilada sauce
- shredded cheese
- 8ish flour tortilla shells

Which do you prefer red sauce enchiladas or green sauce enchiladas?
