Tex-Mex Beef & Pepper Enchiladas
2x the delicious servings!
When it comes to Mexican food, burritos typically get all the glory. In our humble opinion, enchiladas are a total unsung dinner hero–easy to assemble and smothered in a delicious sauce, this family style dinner idea is easy to turn into a feast for a crowd. Our Tex-Mex version is filled with a combo of spiced beef and green pepper, topped with a bold red sauce and Mexican cheese, then baked until bubbly and melty. With a finishing touch of fresh pico and lime crema, that’s a whole ’lada deliciousness. This recipe is double the typical servings, providing 4 servings and 8 servings for a 2 person and 4 person box respectively.

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 475 degrees. Wash and dry produce. • Core, deseed, and dice bell peppers. Quarter lime.
• In a medium bowl, combine tomato paste, half the Tex-Mex paste, half the Southwest Spice Blend, and ¾ cup water (1¼ cups for 8 servings).
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until just softened, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl. • Add another drizzle of oil to same pan. Add beef*, remaining Tex-Mex paste, remaining Southwest Spice Blend, salt, and pepper. • Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. TIP: If there’s excess grease in your pan, carefully pour it out. • Return bell pepper to pan; stir to combine.
• Place a small amount of filling on one half of each tortilla. • Roll up tortillas, starting with filled sides, to create enchiladas. Place seam sides down in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (two 9-by-13-inch dishes for 8 servings).
• Pour sauce over enchiladas to thoroughly coat. Sprinkle with Mexican cheese blend. • Bake on top rack until sauce is bubbly and cheese has melted, 3-5 minutes. (Watch carefully to avoid burning!) • In a second small bowl, combine sour cream with a squeeze of lime juice to taste. Add water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
• Top enchiladas with lime crema and pico de gallo. Divide between plates and serve with remaining lime wedges on the side.
