These beef enchiladas are baked in a home made sauce with beef, coriander, chilli, many other spices then topped with cheese. Your family will enjoy them.
This is my recipe, and I just want to add some comments about some of the comments in the reviews. Some have mentioned that the sauce is too sweet or tastes too much like tomato sauce. My guess is that the wrong prepared salsa is being used. You need to use a high quality prepared FRESH salsa, not that nasty stuff in jars or cans that is mostly tomato sauce. I usually find it in the deli section of my grocery store. It comes in mild, medium, or hot. I prefer the medium, but if you think this recipe is too hot or not hot enough, use the mild or hot versions. If you want it even hotter, add some chopped jalapenos. When I called the sauce spicy, I meant using lots of spices, not "hot" spicy. Also, it is not critical if you don't want to simmer the meat sauce for the extra time. I just think the extra simmering gives the spices a chance to meld with the meat for a better flavor and it also thickens the sauce. I made this several times before I submitted it to make sure I got the spices right. The red sauce also makes a very tasty salsa. Enjoy! - 17 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have tried so many enchilada recipes, and finally this is the one! No need to make changes; it is perfect as is. I did use corn tortillas since that is all the store had (strange), but I doubt that it made any difference. Even the best restaurant enchiladas I have had don't top these. - 19 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
