Monday Freezer Meal Recipe - Awesome Beef Enchiladas

I usually double this recipe, make part for one meal then freeze the other for the next week or two. It helps to do that philosophy of cook once, eat twice! This recipe is pretty easy and you can take away or substitute to your liking. My enchiladas are hardly ever the same!

Awesome Beef Enchiladas
  • 10 Flour Tortillas
  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • 1 bag Birds Eye Ready Peppers and Onions
  • 1 Can Mild Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 Can Refried Beans
  • 1 - 2 Cup Bag of Mexican Style Cheese
Brown your beef. Add in the peppers and onions until they are cooked through/softened from their frozen state. Add in half of the enchilada sauce. Let it get to a simmer/boil. Then take your flour tortilla and smear some refried beans on it. Add the hamburger mixture. Roll up and place into your sprayed 9X12 pan (do not do glass as it may break!) Throw away or metal cake pan is best in this case! After you have rolled all the tortillas up, dump the rest of the enchilada sauce on top. If you still have some hamburger mixture left, then add that on top too. Then take some aluminum foil, label, and freeze. DO NOT PUT THE CHEESE ON YET!

To Cook
Take the enchiladas out and let them thaw overnight in your refrigerator *sometimes this might take 2 days*  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Take out of the refrigerator and remove the foil. *DO NOT THROW AWAY* Add your whole bag of cheese and spread it out. Replace the aluminum foil back on top of the pan and place into the oven for 30 mins or until completely reheated. Then ENJOY :D

And now for the fun part........ALL THE PICTURES! If you make this, let me know what you think! Also, any ideas of what you would like to see next? Let me know!
