Beef Enchiladas

When I was younger I absolutely hated Mexican food. I refused to eat it, come to find out I’m in the vast minority. So I had to learn to like a few different things just so I wasn’t a social outcast. I learned to like Cafe Rio salads, taquitos, chimichangas and enchiladas. I’m getting pretty good at! This recipe turned out pretty great! You should look at our other mexican recipes! Tomorrow be looking for my homemade enchilada sauce!
