My family loves enchiladas, just like these ground beef enchiladas. I usually like to make a skillet version just because they are faster. However, I do want a classic style sometimes too. That is the type that I have for you today.

This classic version of enchiladas has a simple ground beef filling, but there is a secret on the inside. Pepper jack cheese is what ads some wonderful flavor.
