Too Easy Enchiladas

Today, I have another recipe that can help you “simplify” your life.  We are making enchiladas, but there is no need to cook up any meat or roll it up in tortillas.  These too easy enchiladas come together in no time by using frozen beef taquitos.  I used the Jose Ole’ Shredded Steak Taquitos from Sam’s Club to make them. Usually, I have some in my freeze because my boys love to have them on hand for a snack or quick lunch.  I love that they have a corn shell.

I have seen then available in chicken too with a corn shell. If you prefer, then even sell some made with a flour tortilla. Enchiladas are traditionally made with corn tortillas, so that is what I prefer.

Now, you do make an easy enchilada sauce to top these with. However, you could even make life easier and used canned sauce, but I love the thickness of the homemade sauce.  The canned versions tend to be quite thin. Plus, this sauce really comes together quickly. There really isn’t a reason not to make it!
