My family and I just love the taste of Mexican Food and this recipe is no exception to the rule. My friend Monica and her family are pizza lovers and in my home you will find Taco Lovers. We eat Tacos every Saturday night in our home and sometimes even through the week. I love to experiment with new recipes and enjoy cooking about as much as I enjoy eating. Needless to say, I have done a lot of experimenting in the kitchen with Mexican dishes and this one has become a family favorite.

Do you love cheese? Then you will probably enjoy this recipe. I have tried a variety of Enchilada recipes and have been disappointed in a few of them. The biggest disappointment has been in the taste, I am a big cheese lover and this recipe includes cheese in the meat mixture which gives the enchilada's great flavor in my book.
