Beef Enchiladas I love that there are so many adjustments of Beef Enchiladas on this big-wide-world.
Simple ones, crammed with a plain cooked pork filling then topped with enchilada sauce and (lots of) cheese. Fancy ones with the addition of chillies, beans, corn or even olives, normally even bacon. Hidden vegetable types (don’t ever strive that on me, I can opt for them a mile away). Shredded pork enchiladas, brief rib ones.
And right now I’m sharing mine. 🙂
Regular readers won’t be shocked while I say that here's somewhat other to most recipes you come across. The predominant difference being the meat filling which I want to make a piece saucy with the addition of refried beans (seriously, it’s so good!!!!) and additional flavourful by way of means of including spices and a dash of do-it-yourself Enchilada sauce.

I also like so as to feature black beans, to fill it out a piece and upload a other texture to the filling. Diced vegetables are vast so as to feature too – especially red peppers / capsicum.
I make my Enchiladas with a Homemade Enchilada Sauce. Hand on heart, I even have bought bottled enchilada sauce as soon as in my life – and that was simply to style experiment it. I am now not a for snob (remember I’ve professed a mystery love of KFC Popcorn Chicken!), but shopping for Enchilada Sauce is anything that by way of means of no means crosses my thoughts simply due to the fact it's simply so simple and quick to make at house and the flavour is simply infinite occasions higher than what you get in a jar!

Plus, here’s my little time saving tip: one spice blend to flavour equally the meat filling AND the Enchilada Sauce. Paprika, cumin, oregano, onion and/or garlic powder and an elective hit of additional warmth from cayenne pepper.
How lots of these spices have you ever already got on your pantry? All of them? 🙂
