Beef and Bean Enchiladas

This dinner originally started out as something else, but when other elements of the dish turned out to be gross we switched gears. I ended up making both enchiladas and chimichangas, Nate wanted some of each.

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, finely diced
1 green pepper, finely diced
1 can refried beans
1 envelope taco seasoning plus the water it requires
shredded cheddar cheese
enchilada sauce
6 large tortillas

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Halfway through cooking time add the peppers and onion. Once the meat is cooked add the taco seasoning and the water it requires, lower the heat and simmer until the liquid is incorporated. Then add the refried beans to the beef mixture and heat through. Pour a little enchilada sauce into the bottom of your baking dish. Add beef and bean mixture and some cheese to tortillas and roll them up, placing seam side down in the baking dish. Top the enchiladas with a bit more sauce and top with cheese. I don't like my enchiladas too saucy so I don't add much, but add as much as you like. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
