Remarks

For a hotter flavour, add a little Tabasco sauce or chilli to the filling mixture.

You can use another type of meat, such as chicken, instead of the minced beef,

Enchiladas freeze well before cooking, preferably kept separate. To do this, lay them out on a baking sheet to freeze. Once frozen, they can be packed into bags or boxes.
