No joke, this recipe for Beef Enchiladas is to die for! I’ll wager that for many of you (depending on where you live) this recipe is more delicious just about any enchiladas you have had. This is my fourth recipe for Moyer Beef in a series of five and let me tell you, the road to here has been a delicious one! First, it was Chipotle Grilled Steak with Avocado Cream (perfect for date night or a dinner party!), followed by Steak Quesadillas made in your Waffle Maker (so fun, easy and deeee-lish) and the last one was a Cheesy Beef Enchilada Dip (game day!!). Now you have these Beef Enchiladas…Any guesses as to what the last one will be (or requests?).

- WHen ready to assemble enchiladas, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a baking dish, ladle some of the sauce.
- One by one, place a handful of meat in each tortilla, top with a healthy sprinkle of cheese (like in the video), roll it up and place it in the dish. Repeat.
- Top with more sauce and more cheese (as much or as little as you like).
- Bake for 20 minutes, garnish with cilantro, parsley and or scallions if you wish and enjoy!
If you find the sauce too spicy, add some water.
make your own rub by combining 2 TBS Kosher Salt, 2 tsp brown sugar, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp red pepper flakes, 1 TBS paprika ¼ tsp cumin and ½ tsp nutmeg. Blend and use as rub.
This sauce is so scrumptious, use it on meats, fish or rice if you have any leftover.
