Easy Cheesy Enchiladas

Enchiladas is a dish I’ve ALWAYS wanted to make. I always thought they were too hard or wouldn’t taste the way I wanted them to because there are some good authentic Spanish/Mexican restaurants around the Tampa Bay Area.

I finally found a recipe that HITS THE SPOT + we love it 👌🏼 Plus, I sub ground turkey for beef, so it’s *healthy*😬🤭 it also has no artificial colors, flavors or ingredients.

To me, this is the red sauce recipe I’ve been looking for. Combined with cholula + Tabasco chipotle hot sauces and the spices I use: totally is the real deal ✔️

I actually used some ingredients left over from my Simple Sloppy Joes 🤘🏼again, these ingredients you might have on hand. Check out the directions at the bottom of the post. You can use black beans, pinto beans, refried beans or whatever you like! You can also substitute for peppers; use whatever you have on hand.

Let me know how you guys like it, k?!
