What's Hap-pinning Wednesday- Easy Beef Enchiladas

Coming at ya'll with an easy week night recipe! I don't know about you but I love mexican food. I could eat it every night. We definitely have a version of it at least once a week, if not more. Since Tuesday is Taco Tuesday I decided to make enchiladas. This is so quick to throw together and I was able to do it the very end of Graham's nap and it was ready to pop in the oven at dinner time. Bonus, there are some veggies thrown in that most kids wouldn't even notice

Shopping List:

* 1 lb ground beef (chicken or turkey will work too)
* 1-2 zucchini finely diced
* 1/2 chopped onion
* 1 big can red enchilada sauce (you can make your own or go the lazy girls route and do store bought, what I did) 
* 10 flour tortillas
* shredded cheese (fresh grated is the best!)

Steps: 

* saute' the onion and zucchini until soft and then transfer to a bowl
* using the same pan brown your ground beef, drain fat and then add to the zucchini and onion bowl
* Shred your cheese...it really makes this so much better to use freshly shredded 

Assembly: 
*pour a little enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9X13 baking dish
* using 1/4-1/2 cup scoop the beef mixture onto a tortilla
* top with 1 tablespoon enchilada sauce
* top with a sprinkle of cheese 
* roll the tortilla up and place seam side down in baking dish 
*repeat until the baking dish is full
* top with remaining enchilada sauce and shredded cheese 
*bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until warm and bubbly 














This is a favorite of ours and the leftovers are just as good heated up! You could add as many or little veggies as you want, I've also added black beans and corn before too. Get creative! 

Enjoy!

  11. These sound amazing! I would have never thought to add zucchini - that is so clever! And to add some sauce in the enchiladas instead of just on top - I am going to add this to my dinners next week for sure!
