Enchilada Beef Rollups
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner. How about making some delicious Enchilada Beef Rollups!
I seriously could eat Mexican food every single night. My husband loves it too, as do two of my kids. However, two of my children LOVE pasta. I would say they are part Italian, but they’re not.
This dinner made everyone happy! The pasta lovers enjoyed the noodles, and the Mexican lovers enjoyed the spicy sauce! Don’t you love when a single meal can please everyone?
This recipe takes a little extra work because you have to boil your lasagna noodles first. But, you can make this dish in the morning and cook it at dinner time. You can also make it the night before…I get how busy you all are!!
Now, if only my family could agree on their favorite cookie…
