Garlic Beef Enchiladas

We love this recipe! It takes a bit of time to prepare, but it is so very delicious. My favorite beef enchilada recipe ...

I am also trying out a new feature which will enable printing directly from Plan to Eat, which is the menu planning site that I use. Hopefully, the "print" tab will work for you (if you choose to print this recipe)(Also, if you change the font size to "10 pt" on the next screen after you select PRINT, it should print out on one full page.)
