Remarks

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.
Keeping
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
