Beef & Bean Enchiladas

Yummy & so quick! You could add all kinds of things to these to suit your taste buds. My kids liked them without the enchilada sauce.

1 # ground chuck or ground chicken or turkey
2- 16 oz cans refried beans
1 1/2 tsp dried minced onion
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
10 flour tortillas, warmed
1/4 c onion, chopped
1 1/2 c shredded cheddar or Monterrey jack cheese
10 oz can enchilada sauce, warmed
Sliced black olives

In a large skillet, cook meat until done. Drain. Stir in the beans, dried minced onion, chili powder & salt. Heat through. Place 1/3 cupful down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle each with onion & cheese. Fold bottom & sides over the filling. Pour warmed sauce over top & garnish with black olives.

Freezer Directions
Prepare as directed without the warmed enchilada sauce.  Once wrapped in the tortilla, wrap in foil, and place in ziploc bags to freeze.  You can bake as directed or warm in the microwave to serve.

Everybody liked these. I am planning on making a batch just to freeze for summer lunches.
