Notes

  • Use any color bell peppers for the green, if desired. 
  • If you've got leftover ground beef enchilada filling, spread it over top the rolled enchiladas before adding the Rotel. 
  • If your family doesn't like any spice, you can substitute a can of regular diced tomatoes for the tomatoes with chilies.
  • If you want to make it in the traditional oven, place in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish, cover and cook at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. Uncover and cook for additional 5-8 minutes.
  • Barbara likes fixing these in her casserole crock pot on the weekend when she's prepping several meals for the week and can have these cooking while she's fixing another meal in the oven and another on the stove-top.
