Beef Enchiladas

Updated: Aug 4, 2021

Try out these homemade beef enchiladas for a midweek meal, they taste as good as they look.

We have used Gia Chilli Puree in the sauce and the beef filling which gives it a spicy kick, add more or less depending on how you like it?

1 teaspoon of chilli puree is approx 2 small chilli peppers.

We also used our Gia Garlic Puree & Eazy Onions in this dish so no need for tears chopping up ingredients! If you have not tried them yet, what are you waiting for?

You can buy all the ingredients you need for this recipe from Sainsbury's or Morrisons.
