Simply Beef Enchiladas

For years I stayed away from making enchiladas thinking they would be too difficult; I tried a few recipes in cookbooks and they just were not fitting to my family's tastes. My hubby said to me "Keep it Simple." So that's what I did and these are quick simple enchiladas that everyone in my family can and will eat.
