Do you like good homemade  beef enchiladas? I know I do any time of year. I have been having a craving for some good enchiladas lately.But with the scorching heat of the summer with temps well above 100 degrees heating up the house with the oven was not an option.  Well today I couldn’t resist my craving and decided to make a quick and easy enchilada recipe that I love.
Recently I received  Amalia’s Cocina Enchilada, Tamale and Chili Colorado Sauces to review.

Amalia’s Cocina  is a family owned business. The sauces

are made from the finest ingredient and inspired by the idea that easy  home-style meals brings people together. All of the sauces are made from 100 year old  authentic family recipes. I just love those kind of recipes that are handed down from generation to generation.
“Amalia’s Cocina, Inc. was founded in 2005 by five Mexican American women. The owners represent three generations of Amalia Portillo’s family; Amalia herself, her daughters, Ida Norwood, Brenda Noel and Stephanie Jourdan and her granddaughter, Jamie Norwood. For over 50 years, Amalia’s family has enjoyed her savory dishes and learned the secrets to her exceptional cooking.”
When I make enchiladas or Mexican casseroles I usually always
use the canned enchilada sauce. I have never really found one
that was to my liking. I don’t make enchiladas that often for that reason. So today I was excited about trying out this sauce to see if it could satisfy my picky palate. I wanted a quick and easy recipe. So I chose a recipe I have had for quite some time. An enchilada recipe that is quick, easy and delicious.

First I browned one pound of ground meat with one large chopped onion. I added a package of taco seasoning mix with one cup of water. I added one can of Bush’s Chili Beans and let this cook until the sauce is thick.This is the filling for the enchiladas and yes very quick and easy. I used flour tortillas for this recipe but if you prefer corn that will work well also. Just spoon filling inside the tortilla being careful
not to overfill it so you can roll it up.

I rolled up the enchiladas and put some enchilada sauce on the bottom of the pan then placed the rolled enchiladas on top. I poured the sauce on top and added Mexican cheese. This only takes about 20 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees and your done. You can serve this with Spanish rice if  you like.

Here they are straight out of the oven and ready to taste. Don’t
they look delicious? I couldn’t wait to taste them!

 And yes, Amalia’s Cocina Enchilada Sauce was incredible!
I now have a new favorite sauce for my quick easy enchilada
recipe. This sauce has a deep rich flavor with just the right amount of spices. I will never used the canned sauce again. Thank you Amalia’s Cocina for sponsoring this review. I love your enchilada sauce and I plan on trying the  Tamale and Chili Colorado Sauce in the near future.
