Lazy Beef Enchiladas

by Laura

These enchiladas are called lazy beef enchiladas, but they really should be called a great way to use up tortilla chips beef enchiladas. Or you could call them I ran out of corn tortillas but I have chips beef enchiladas.

I had a bag of tortilla chips that needed to be used up. This is how I decided to use them up. The good thing about using tortilla chips instead of corn tortillas, the chips have a firmer texter to them, unlike the softer texture you get with corn tortillas.
