Beef Enchiladas

Last night I made Beef Enchiladas for dinner.  They were fantastic.  I flavored the ground beef with taco seasoning and a little enchilada sauce.  Added some green chili and I was set to make the enchiladas.  Using a small flour tortillas (fajita size), I spooned the filling on the tortillas,sprnkeld with cheese and rolled.  I put the seam side down in the prepared baking dish.  Baked for about 25 minutes in a 375 degree oven.  Once done, I let them cool for about 10 minutes and then served.  An easy and delicious meal prepared in minutes.
I had a hard time getting a picture as the family started serving themselves while I got my camera.
