Beef enchiladas recipe -loaded with a delicious cheesy meat filling. They are easy, cheesy and delicious! A dish your whole family will love.

One of my all time favorite Mexican dishes is enchiladas. They are so easy to make, freeze well and are the perfect weeknight meal. We love serving them with a big salad, chips and salsa. I’ve shared my favorite green chile enchiladas and creamy chicken enchiladas, so today I thought I’d share a beef enchilada which are just as yummy! These beef enchiladas come together quickly and are perfect for busy week nights.

These enchiladas are loaded with a hearty meat mixture, lots of cheese and some veggies too. ;) I also used Old El Paso green chiles and the mild red enchilada sauce.
