Enchilada Sauce Recipe

Tonight I am making a sort of spin on my own Enchiladas. I am using ground beef with a bit of burrito seasoning and cheese on the inside of the yummy enchiladas wrapped around a soft flour tortilla smothered in my home made enchilada sauce. I baked it at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Sorry folks about my lack of posts.
Last week here in Reno we hosted the NTA convention. All I can say is that it was pretty crazy and we are still exhausted!

Have a great Tuesday!
