Beef & Bean Enchiladas

Okay now that I just shared the "best enchiladas ever" recipe, you probably are wondering why I even bother sharing this one with you, but it's because I'm broadening my horizons! This recipe is super easy and tasted awesome. This isn't a casserole dish either, so it's easier to take on-the-go.

1 lb. ground beef
2 cans (16 oz. each) refried beans, I used fat free
1-1/2 tsp. dried minced onion
1 to 2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
10 flour tortillas, warmed
1/4 c. chopped onion
1-1/2 c. (6 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 can (10 oz.) enchilada sauce, warmed
1 can (2.5 oz.) sliced ripe olives, drained

*In a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the beans, dried minced onion, chili powder and salt; heat through.
*Place about 1/3 cupful down the center of each tortilla. Sprinkle each with onion and cheese. Fold bottom and sides over the filling. Pour sauce over top; garnish with olives. Enjoy!
