Firefighter Beef Enchiladas

Firefighter beef enchiladas

My firefighter and his fellow firefighters have to be some of the best cooks ever!!  I love when my husband decides to make one of his many meals that they make at the station.  Not only are they all very yummy, but most of them are very inexpensive as well.  One of my favorite meals is his beef enchiladas.  It's a very simple recipe with just a few ingredients and super cheap, the whole meal cost our family under $15 to make.  
This is cheaper than two meals from McDonald's!!!

I package of white corn tortillas
1lb of ground beef
2 cans of chili
1 onion (optional)
1 jalapeno (optional)
1 bag of shredded cheese
2 packages of taco seasoning

Brown the meat in a skillet and add the taco seasoning. Follow the instructions on the back of the package. Then soften the tortillas with a bit of oil on very low heat.  (You do not want to cook the tortillas just soften them so they don't tear when you roll them up).
Once the tortilla is soft scoop a spoonful of the meat into the tortilla and roll up. Place into a large baking dish.  Keep doing this until there is no room left in the baking dish.  Next pour the chili on top of all the enchiladas add cheese onion and jalapeño.  Cover and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Or until the cheese is melted.  
See, easy peasy!!!

Enjoy with a side of chips and salsa :)
