Who would not love a simple and fast dinner. Especially if that straightforward and fast dinner is enchiladas! This Easy Enchiladas with Steak and Cheese recipe is just like one we have made for a few years. The different recipe makes use of floor beef, which is admittedly good, however utilizing thinly sliced steak as a substitute, takes the outdated recipe to an entire new stage.
We added slightly facet salad to reinforce the steak enchiladas. The salad had candy cherry tomatoes, an avocado and, in fact, some contemporary Jalapenos. The avocado provides a pleasant taste that actually compliments this dish. Top the Enchiladas with some Cotija cheese and cilantro or inexperienced onions. The Cotija cheese is just like Feta, however not as salty. It provides nice texture and actually blends with the flavors of the sauce, corn tortillas, and steak. If you do not have the Cotija cheese, simply use slightly bitter cream, it is also actually yummy!!!
How to make Easy Enchiladas with Steak and Cheese
We bought thinly sliced steak meat. This means, I did not need to attempt to thinly slice the meat, and because it's thinly sliced, it takes lower than 5 minutes to cook dinner the steak.

Place the steak in a sauté pan. When the steak begins to cook dinner, add the seasoning; Cumin, Garlic Powder, Salt and Cayenne Pepper (The Cayenne Pepper is optionally available) to the meat. Add 1/4 Cup of water to maintain the spices from sticking to the pan. It will solely take about 5 minutes to cook dinner the steak.
