I love me some Enchiladas. In this simple recipe, a Chipotle sauce is made with canned Chipotle in Adobo sauce. The same sauce is used to flavor ground Beef that is stuffed in a Tortilla and rolled. These are covered with a cheesy sauce aka a Bechamel and Chipotle sauce. This is a great simple recipe to make for a weeknight dinner. You can also make these ahead, freeze and then bake.
