This is my daughter Ariel’s favorite enchilada recipe. I found the recipe for the Red Enchilada Sauce in a fund raiser cookbook that my mother in-law Sharon gave me. I tweaked it just a little. I use the sauce in a few of my other recipes like Mexican Lasagna and Chicken Enchiladas that I will be posting the next time that I make them. Serve them with Easy Spanish Rice.
1 pound ground beef
8 flour tortilla (soft taco size)
Red Enchilada Sauce (recipe follows)

Prepare enchilada sauce; set aside.
Spread about 1 cup sauce in the bottom of prepared baking dish.
