Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas

Enchiladas are an easy delicious meal. There are endless options for the fillings.Use chicken, pork, beef, vegetarian, the combinations are endless.
Today, I have made Easy Cheesy Beef Enchiladas with Ground Beef,  Onions, Green Chiles and Olives. I am sorry to say that I didn't get a picture of the inside of the enchilada, obviously you have to be quick with the camera in my house!!My kids ate them up very quickly. Yes these are always a big hit. I always make a double batch just for that reason, they go very quickly. Serve with a side of brown rice, refried beans and a Mango Margarita, ARRRIBBBA! 

  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1  lb. Natural Ground Beef
  • I small can chopped Black Olives
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1 small can Green Chiles
  •  8 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese (grated)
  • 2 small cans enchilada sauce
  • 1 jar mild salsa
  • 1 package ( 12 count) small tortillas ( flour or corn)
