Skillet Enchiladas

So, I'm always making tacos and I'm always craving Mexican. It really is one of my absolute favorites. My husband on the other hand would be fine if I made tacos or any type of Mexican dishes maybe twice a year. What?! Well, to break away from my taco addiction I decided on Skillet Enchiladas. Just as delicious and it's not tacos so my hubby will be happy. Ha. This dish was insanely delicious and it's a super simple recipe that's ready in under 30 minutes.

Skillet Enchiladas
Serves 6
Cal 251, Carbs 22, Fat 7.8, Fiber 1, Protein 20.8

16 oz. 93/7 ground beef
2 tbsp. taco seasoning
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
6 corn tortillas
1 can enchilada sauce, divided
1 can petite diced tomatoes, drained
1 cup reduced fat shredded Mexican blend cheese (I used Weight Watchers)
cilantro and green onion for garnish

Brown ground beef and onion over medium high heat. Drain and add in the taco seasoning, half of the enchilada sauce, and tomatoes.  Let simmer for about 5 minutes.

Next layer the corn tortillas over the meat mixture. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over tortillas and sprinkle with cheese.

Broil for about 4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh cilantro and green onions. Enjoy!
