Easy Beef Enchiladas

I am by no means an expert when it comes to Mexican food. I do enjoy eating it, though. This is my simple and "Americanized" version of beef enchiladas. They are easy enough to prepare after a long work day. These were pretty spicy to me but the boys I fed them to loved them.

Beef Enchiladas

1-1/2 lb ground beef
1 small onion, finely chopped (opt)
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
12 small flour tortillas
1 pkg shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
1 can prepared enchilada sauce

Brown ground beef with onion and drain. Add taco seasoning mix and 1 cup water. Simmer until thickened. Spoon ground beef mixture onto each of 12 tortillas. Top with cheese. Roll up and place on a greased baking pan. Pour sauce over the tortillas and top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes. Serve with black or refried beans and spanish rice.
