Beef and Bean Enchiladas

Serves 6

1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey) - shredded chicken would also work
3 gloves garlic minced (optional)
Chopped onions
Cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper to taste
2 cups enchilada sauce divided (I prefer green over red)
1  15 oz can refried beans
12 corn tortillas
Grated cheese to top the enchiladas (mozzarella or cheddar work well)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Brown beef with garlic and  onions and drain.  I season my ground beef with cumin, chili powder, and a touch of cayenne pepper for a little kick.  You could also used toco seasoning instead.  Add 1 cup of enchilada sauce and the can of refried beans to the meat.  Microwave tortillas for 30 sec - l minute to soften.   Spread a spoonful of sauce on each tortilla and top with meat mixture and cheese.  Roll up tortillas and place seam side down in sprayed 8 inch glass casserole.  Top with remaining sauce to cover and sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Bake 20-25 minutes.

I'm visiting Rachel and she made this for me today for lunch.  Yum.  When she made it she used the green enchilada sauce instead of the mild red enchilada sauce.  She also used white cheese instead of the cheddar cheese.
