Bean and Cheese Enchiladas with Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Bean and Cheese Enchiladas with Homemade Enchilada Sauce

I made a big pot of refried beans that my entire family loved – especially my daughter. I decided to use some of the beans in a batch of enchiladas along with homemade red enchilada sauce and Monterey Jack cheese. Simple and delicious. The enchiladas made my house smell amazing while they baked. We all thought they were delicious and it was hard not to go back for seconds. The flavorful beans were tasty with flour tortillas, Jack cheese, and spicy enchilada sauce. I topped them with fresh cilantro, tomatoes, and avocado. I am looking forward to the leftovers!
