Hearty Beef Enchiladas Recipe
(These are sooooo good! Make sure to fry the tortillas in oil, it only takes a few minutes and really makes the taste pop! Yet another low-fat recipe, courtesy of Bella, lol! PS: I love "Sam's Choice" medium salsa available at Walmart or Sam's Club, love the La Victoria products, too.)

My husband loves his food extra-cheesy, so I can never put too much cheese over the top of these enchiladas! You can set out small bowls of diced onions and tomatoes so folks can add their own garnishes. —Joylyn Trickel
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion
1 can (15-1/2 ounces) chili beans, undrained
1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce, divided
1/2 cup salsa, divided
7 corn or flour tortillas (8 inches)
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
In a large saucepan, cook beef and onions over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the beans, 2/3 cup enchilada sauce and 2 tablespoons salsa; set aside.
In a skillet, heat 1/4 in. of oil. Dip each tortilla in hot oil for 3 seconds on each side or just until limp; drain on paper towels.
Top each tortilla with 2/3 cup beef mixture. Roll up and place seam side down in an 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Drizzle with remaining enchilada sauce and salsa. Sprinkle with cheese and olives.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
Yield: 7 enchiladas
