HOW TO MAKE BEEF ENCHILADAS

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F.

Step 2: In the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, pour a cup of enchilada sauce and set aside.

Step 3: In a saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the ground beef, green chiles, salt, and pepper and cook for approximately 3 to 5 minutes until brown, crumbling the beef as it cooks. When done, drain the excess grease.

Step 4: Place the beef, corn, beans, half cup of Monterey Jack cheese, and a half cup of cheddar cheese in a large bowl. Mix well until combined.

Step 5: On a flat surface, lay the tortilla. In the middle of the tortilla, spoon 1/4 cup of the beef mixture. Roll the tortillas and place them onto the prepared baking sheet seam-side down. Do the same with the rest of the tortillas and beef mixture. Top the enchiladas with the rest of the enchilada sauce and cheeses. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes until bubbly.

Step 6: Remove from the oven when done. Before serving, garnish with cilantro, avocado, and tomato. Enjoy!
