Mexican Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Mexican Shredded Beef Enchiladas
Enchiladas are are always welcome in my books! You really can't go wrong taking a tasty filling, wrapping it up in a tortilla, smothering it with sauce and cheese and baking it until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is all nice and melted and good! These enchiladas are stuffed with tender Mexican pulled beef and a chipotle and ancho enchilada sauce with a hint of cocoa. Although I could devour an entire batch of these shredded beef enchiladas just with the meat, sauce, tortillas and melted cheese, I also like to top them with some cool and fresh guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream and queso fresco for one really tasty and satisfying meal!

I'm with you, it's hard to go wrong melted cheese on top of a tortilla with all the good stuff inside. I love how you made this enchilada recipe your own. This is definitely a dish I would order at a restaurant and thankfully wouldn't have to call a carpet cleaning business for. I do love to douse my Mexican food with sour cream, it's a solid option.
