Enchilada Beef Rollups

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner. How about making some delicious Enchilada Beef Rollups!

Enchilada Beef Rollups: a delicious dinner that pleases the pasta lovers and mexican food lovers! #cincodemayo @shugarysweets

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…

    I made this last night and it was so good. I usually change recipes a smidge but not this one. I brought it to a taste-tester at work and he said it was damn good. I will use this during football season for sure!

    I love pasta and I love enchiladas…perfect combo! I think I’ll try using Philly jalapeno cream cheese for some extra heat! Looks delicious!!!!

    I hate when I don’t read the recipe all the way through. I only browned 1 lb of hamburger meat and then couldn’t figure out why my meat mixture was spread thin by roll up #9. LOL Oh well, took left over noodles and made a “clean the fridge out” lasagna for later.
