Day 198 (9/7): Beef Enchiladas

I'm always making To-Do lists and seem to get a few of the items crossed off.  Now as my vacation is ending I'm realizing that I wanted to get a LOT more done on my list.  I started the 101 in 1001 goal setting list to see if it goes any better.  You can read about it here.   One of those goals is to cook some different foods besides what we've been eating so in the next 2.75 years I set a goal of cooking 50 new recipes.  Colton saw this recipe in a new cookbook I got and has been craving them for about a week now.  With running him to practices and games, I need to find some quick and easy recipes that he will eat and this was a keeper.  I modified it some so here are my revisions.  The recipe in the cookbook left out the onion and beans so it can be made even simpler.

Beefy Rice Enchiladas

1 pkg spanish or mexican rice
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can refried beans
1 pkg shredded cheddar cheese
1 pkg tortilla shells
2 cans enchilada sauce

1.  Brown beef with chopped onion.
2.  Cook rice according to directions while ground beef is browning.
3.  After beef is browned, add rice, can of beans, and 1 can of enchilada sauce.
4.  Spread meat mixture on tortilla shells.  Sprinkle a little cheese on top of meat mixture and roll.  Place in pan.  I was able to get 10 rolled enchiladas so I cooked about 6 and froze the rest for later.
5.  Pour other can of enchilada sauce over rolled enchiladas and sprinkle with rest of cheddar cheese.
6.  Cook for 15 minutes, uncovered at 350 degrees.  (I had to run and pick up Colton from practice so I covered with foil before I set it in oven and uncovered for 5 minutes when I got back.)
